NEW GAME: CHOOSE YOUR BAND! Day 6 update - CONGRATULATIONS lover of myskina!!!!

Choose Your Band!
Welcome to "Choose Your Band!"! It's a simple game and you need just a minute to play it. All you have to do is choosing one player from each bracket. Players are divided into brackets by their ranking, but sometimes a player might be bumped to balance the brackets(only in extreme cases like players coming back from retirement or injuries).

Scoring
The formula used to determine a score of a player is: RESULT = ACHIEVED RESULT - EXPECTED RESULT, where RESULT>=0, so you can't lose points by picking someone.
Expected result is a result based on player's position on entry list:
1 to 4 - semifinal
5 to 8 - quarterfinal
9 to 16 - Last 16
17 to 32 - Last 32
(...)
Points are based on WTA's points schelude made for certain type of tournament, so in Stanford we'll use Premier points(470/320/200/120/60/0). Please note that I will assign 0 points for first round.
Qualifiers and Wild Cards are assigned in order they appear in draw and their points will be doubled.

(note: if there will be 5 Q/LL's in the draw of Stanford, we will use only first four ones)

Withdrawals
When a player withdraws, a random player from same bracket will be chosen.
Everyone who had the player chosen will have her replaced by same player.

The deadline is the SCHELUDED time of start of first match of tournament's main draw.

STANFORD
Bracket 1 (expected points 200)
1. Serena Williams
2. Venus Williams
3. Elena Dementieva
4. Jelena Jankovic


Bracket 2 (expected points 120)
5. Nadia Petrova
6. Dominika Cibulkova
7. Agnieszka Radwańska
8. Marion Bartoli

Bracket 3 (expected points 60)
9. Li Na
10. Samantha Stosur
11. Sybille Bammer
12. Sabine Lisicki
13. Daniela Hantuchova
14. Sorana Cirstea
15. Alisa Kleybanova
24. Maria Sharapova(bumped from Bracket 4, reason: being underranked due to injury)

Bracket 4 (expected points 0)
16. Aleksandra Wozniak

17. Shuai Peng
18. Anna Chakvetadze
19. Maria Kirilenko
20. Melinda Czink
21. Ai Sugiyama
22. Anne Keothavong
23. Bethanie Mattek-Sands

Qualifier 1
Qualifier 2
Qualifier 3
Qualifier 4
Wild Card 1
Wild Card 2
Wild Card 3
Wild Card 4

If enough players will want to play, I will manage the tournaments every week and I will create the general ranking rules then.


Pick Example

Bracket 1 (expected points 200)
2. Venus Williams

Bracket 2 (expected points 120)
7. Agnieszka Radwańska

Bracket 3 (expected points 60)
15. Alisa Kleybanova

Bracket 4 (expected points 0)
18. Anna Chakvetadze

Re: NEW GAME: CHOOSE YOUR BAND! Takes 1 minute to play!

Sorry, I have messed the formula , of course you'd get 270 points. I have changed it now and you can edit the pick if you want, of course.
