Tipping #185 │ Dubai 2012 │ Final Scores is up! Congrats Ben.!



TIPPING #185 ‒ DUBAI
Dubai, UAE (Tier: Premier)
February 20 - 25, 2012




Welcome to Tipping Dubai, the fourth Premier 5 tournament of the season! This is the 185th Tipping tournament and 7th in 2012.

Past Finals

2011: Buitenzorg defeated *Jean*
2010: nevetsslim defeated *Jean*
2009: Marco-Alize defeated Tatinovic

HOW TO PLAY

If you still don't know what Tipping is, it is like Tennis Tipping but different. You don't play other people and you don't have to tip the score which makes it an easier game to play. Everyone can 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 Li
V. Williams vs Pironkova

This is how you would tip...
Ivanovic
Pironkova

It is only main draw singles matches.

If there's 1 point played in a match then the match counts (walkover or a pre-match retirement 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.

HOW TO SOLVE TIES

1. The player who guessed the winner.
2. The player who is closest in games guessed.
3. 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.
4. The player who got the most correct picks in the semi final. If the same, move backwards to quarterfinal and so on.

SCORING AND BONUS POINTS

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

Aside from the points that you accumulated during the tournament, bonus points will be added for the Top 12 scorers.

W: 160
F: 120
SF: 80
QF: 60
9-12: 40

THE RANKINGS

Your best 15 results the past 52 weeks will count towards your ranking. There are no mandarory tournaments.
You can check out the current rankings here

Good luck with management

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again
