Tipping #115-Brisbane. Congratulations Ralph214,May this be the first of many titles!

Welcome to Brisbane!

Past Results: 2010 *Jean* def Drake1980
2009 Savitri def TatiNovic




How to play
Playing Tipping is very easy. I will post the schedule and then you just tip who you think will win. Just type "in" to play (this will make my life easier but if you forgot to post "in" this is not the end of the world).

e.g If the schedule was...
Ivanovic vs Sharapova
V. Williams vs S. Williams

This is how you might tip...
Ivanovic
V. Williams


It is only main draw singles matches.
If there's 1 point played in a match then the match counts (walkover doesn´t count).
Pick for each match should be posted before the scheduled start of that match.
For the final match you will also need to guess how many games will be played. This will work as a tiebreaker.

Do NOT edit your post. If you want to change your picks do it in a new post. Edited posts will make all your picks invalid.



OLD RULES!
How to solve ties
1. The player who is closest in games guessed.
2. The player who guessed the winner.
3. The player who got the most correct picks in the semi final. If the same, move backwards to quarterfinal and so on.
4. The player who posted the fastest post in the final. If no one posted in the final go backwards to the semis and so on.

RULE CHANGED!
1. The player who guessed the winner.
2. If both or neither guessed the winner, person closer in the number of games.
3. If they tipped the same number of games, the one who posted earlier.
4. If neither posted for the finals, the person who got more points in the semis. If not even that decides it, we go backwards comparing points in previous rounds.

Scoring and bonus points
First Round = 1 point per correct tip.
Every additional round = one point more than for the previous, per correct tip.

Bonus Points:
Win: 120
F: 80
SF: 60
QF: 45



Good luck everyone!

Re: Tipping #115-Brisbane--New Season!

Kev--I made it early because there are people who need to commit who won't be able to due to holidays. It's also to make sure everyone knows when the first tipping tournament is.

Yup, last time we almost skipped the first week, cause we didn't know who'll run the event and which tournament we'll even play, also people were on holidays, almost no one was on the forum and some of those that were here, were obviously too drunk to remember that the season is about to start So we had just 13 people playing last year in Auckland, and these IS events count for Bali so it's best to start the first thread a bit earlier.
