I wonder if this game sounds any fun?
During WTA season, prior to the beginning of each week's tournaments, players are allowed to place their $ on player stocks based on the player's ranking points. Players would be allowed to sell or purchase the stocks before the qualifying tournaments begin based on the points the players are at during the week of purchase.
We will use New Zealand Thursday 23:59 as the deadline for purchasing stocks. For week 1 tournaments (Auckland and Brisbane), stock purchases will begin Dec. 26 at 00:01 and end on Dec. 29 at 23:59 New Zealand Time.
Since this is a new tournament, each new player will be allocated with $16. Each stock purchase or sold will create a transaction fee of 10% or $1, rounds to the nearest dollar, whichever is greater. Each player may only perform transaction once (purchase or sell) by posting on the board. When players run out of $ and hold no stock at the end of the season, players will be replenished up to $16 (Maximum 16 tournaments points count for WTA Tour) at the end of the season.
Players may not donate their $ to others.
For week of Jan. 2,
Selling/Purchasing Period: 12/26 00:01 - 12/29 23:59
Selling/Purchasing $ based on: Ranking points of 12/26
For week of Jan. 9,
Selling/Purchasing Period: 01/02 00:01 - 01/05 23:59

Rankings will be based on player's current cash, stock, and cash + stock (it will be based on the official WTA ranking post) on a weekly basis. Players buy-able will be listed each week based on the amount of cash the highest person hold. Players with 0 points are not buy-able.
During the weeks of Grand Slams (week 1), players would be allowed to raffle on who will win the tournament. Players who raffle will not be allowed to perform any stock options.
