Re: Pick-A-Winner (PAW) - Fed Cup Finals - 2010 | MISTAKE! Each player only gets 5 pi
TO CLEAR UP ANY CONFUSION
Here is how things will work in the event of line-up changes:
If a line-up changes, PAWs made for the other match will still be valid.
So, for example, in the Australia vs. Ukraine match:
Originally, Match #3 was supposed to be STOSUR vs. BONDARENKO. However, Bondarenko was replaced by KICHENOK.
But, ALL MATCHES FOR STOSUR vs. BONDARENKO WILL STILL COUNT, but they will be changed accordingly, AS WILL THE SCORING POINTS.
So, a detailed example:
Player A picks Stosur def. Bondarenko
But, Bondarenko is replaced by Kichenok.
Player A's PAW AUTOMATICALLY gets changed to Stosur def. Kichenok.
Also, scoring points will change. So, instead of getting 7 points for the Stosur victory, players will only get 2 points (because the points of Stosur vs. Kichenok are [2-52])
I am aware that this may be a little strange, but it is better than all PAWs becoming invalid.
How should you be? You should be like a rocky promontory against which the restless surf continuously pounds.
It stands fast while the churning sea is lulled to sleep at its feet. I hear you say,
"How unlucky that this should happen to me."
But not at all.
Perhaps say instead how lucky I am that I am not broken by what has happened,
and I am not afraid of what is about to happen.
