Tennis Pentathlon #24 -- TOC, Sofia * Congrats cswab22 and Dynamo!

Tennis Pentathlon #24 -- TOC, Sofia



This is a game where you pick during a whole tournament and cannot be out after having a bad day.

Despite the name the game is very simple. Game manager puts OOP every day.You only have to follow a few steps.

Step 1. – Pick winners and set rates for all matches (exactly the same as in TT).
Step 2. – Move up and down the matches int he OOP. Most possible good picks should be top, risky ones should be down.
Step 3. (Optional) – Read the scoring rules for WAR subevent. That subevent might need a bit of strategy (you can have a separate set of picks for WAR subevent)

I am bad and that's good.
I will never be good and that's not bad.
I will always be me.

- You send your picks like TT, with set ratios (2-0 or 2-1), but in the order you are most confident of winning. So if Serena plays she's probably your top pick, and if two equal-ranked scrubs play each other that's likely the bottom pick.

- If your pick is correct, you get points according to how many picked the loser in that match. So if you picked Serena in WAR you would get 0 or 1 points, while picking Razzano could yield 20 points. Therefore you may want to be slightly more adventurous with your WAR picks as the potential payout is large.

Disciplines

Scoring example here (Tennis Pentathlon #4 - Congrats Teem India, Dynamo Morpork and valac222)


TC (for historical reasons)
Scoring is easy. You got three points if you pick the winner and the correct set ratio. You got two points if you pick the winner and incorrect set ratio.

Scoring example
Code:
Order of Play	                 Results	SR 	                   Player  Pick
Dubois vs Vesnina	         Vesnina	20	                   Hlavackova 2-0
Date-Krumm vs Hercog	         Hercog	        20	                   Medina-Garrigues 2-0
McHale vs Wozniak	         Wozniak	21	                   Scheepers 2-0
Hampton vs Stephens	         Hampton	20	                   Zahlavova-Strycova 2-0
Dokic vs Voskoboeva	         Voskoboeva     NSR	                   Vesnina 2-1
Scheepers vs Ormaechea	         Ormaechea      21	                   Hercog 2-0
Oudin vs Medina	                 Medina	        21	                   McHale 2-1
Falconi vs Hlavackova	         Hlavackova     20	                   Stephens 2-1
Govortsova vs K.Bondarenko	 K.Bondarenko	21	                   Voskoboeva 2-0
Daniilidou vs Kudryavtseva	 Daniilidou	20	                   K.Bondarenko 2-0
Zahlavova vs Giorgi	         Zahlavova	20	                   Daniilidou 2-1
Voegele vs Gajdosova	         Voegele	21	                   Gajdosova 2-1
U.Radwanska vs Hradecka	         Hradecka	20	                   Hradecka 2-0
Dushevina vs Chan	         Dushevina	20	                   Dushevina 2-1
Minella vs Lucic	         Lucic	        20	                   Lucic 2-0
Rodionova vs Czink	         Rodionova	21	                   Rodionova 2-1
You had 6 correct picks with correct SR (Hlavackova20, Zahlavova20, Hradecka 20, Hercog 20, Lucic 20, Rodionova 21) 3 points each.
You had 6 correct picks with incorrect SR (Voskoboeva, Medina, Vesnina, Daniilidou, Dushevina, Bondarenko ) 2 points each.
You had 4 incorrect picks , no points.

6*3 + 6*2 = 30





WAR (Worth A Risky Pick?)
It is easier to go through on scoring through an example:

(OOP) Goerges vs Radwanska

Let’s say 8 picked Radwanska and 3 picked Goerges. If Gorges wins the three players who picked her get 8 points (each). If Radwanska wins the players who picked her get 3 points (each).


Scoring example
Code:
Player  Pick
Hlavackova2-0	5 points  (as 5 picked Falconi)
Medina-G  2-0	3 points  (as 3 picked Oudin)
Scheepers 2-0	0 points  (wrong pick)
Zahlavova 2-0	2 points  (as 2 picked Giorgi)
Vesnina 2-1	3 points  (as 3 picked Dubois)
Hercog 2-0	6 points  (as 6 picked Date)
McHale 2-1	0 points  (wrong pick)
Stephens 2-1	0  etc.
Voskoboeva 2-0	0
K.Bondarenko 2-0	4
Daniilidou 2-1	3
Gajdosova 2-1	0
Hradecka 2-0	10
Dushevina 2-1	1
Lucic 2-0	11
Rodionova 2-1	12



Sequence
You should vary the order of the matches in order to have the most possible winners earlier in the sequence. If first row of your pick is a winner (but the second is not) you got 11*11 point. If the first two rows of your pick are winners (but the third is not) you got 12*12 points. If the first three rows of your picks are winners (but the fourth is not) you got 13*13 points. Etc…


Scoring example
Code:
Player  Pick
Hlavackova2-0	correct pick
Medina-G  2-0	correct pick
Scheepers 2-0	wrong pick , after your first wrong pick the rest does not matter, you have 12*12 points
Zahlavova 2-0	
Vesnina 2-1	
Hercog 2-0 
McHale 2-1	
Stephens 2-1	
Voskoboeva 2-0	0
K.Bondarenko 2-0	
Daniilidou 2-1	
Gajdosova 2-1	
Hradecka 2-0	
Dushevina 2-1	
Lucic 2-0	
Rodionova 2-1




PRO (Place in Right Order)
You should vary the order of the matches in order to have the most possible winners earlier in the sequence. First row of your pick has a 16 multiplier, second row has 15, third 14 etc. If your pick on the row is a winner with correct set rate your score is 2*the corresponding multiplier, if your pick on the row is a winner but with incorrect set rate then your score is 1* the corresponding multiplier.


Scoring example
[CODE]
Player Pick
Code:
Hlavackova 2-0                correct pick correct SR  16*2 points
Medina-Garrigues 2-0          correct pick incorrect SR 15*1 points
Scheepers 2-0                 incorrect pick 14*0    points
Zahlavova-Strycova 2-0        correct pick correct SR  13*2 points
Vesnina 2-1                   correct pick incorrect SR 12*1 points
Hercog 2-0                    correct pick correct SR  11*2 points
McHale 2-1                    incorrect pick 10*0 points
Stephens 2-1                  incorrect pick 9*0 points
Voskoboeva 2-0                (etc)
K.Bondarenko 2-0
Daniilidou 2-1
Gajdosova 2-1
Hradecka 2-0
