Pick-A-Winner (PAW) #624 - Sofia ToC's - Hachiko is the Champion !

Pick-A-Winner #624 Sofia ToC's


Previous Winners

Welcome to Pick-A-Winner (PAW), the Predictions game!



Since this is the Tournament of Champions, this tournament is only open to the 16 highest PAW players who won a International Event this season!

Four Alternate positions will also be allocated for players ranked 17 to 20, just in case any of the top 16 players do not play the tournament. The 4 Alternate players can post PAW picks until it is determined that they cannot play in the tournament.

Playing PAW is simple. Over the course of the tournament choose any 7 matches and post who you think will win them.

Some basic guidelines:

Never edit or delete your posts. If you want to change or cancel a pick, use a new post to state your new pick .
Please try to check if a match has started before picking it. If a pick is late it is invalid and you may replace it.
If a player withdraws before the start of the match, the pick does not count and may be replaced.
If a player retires after one point has been played, the pick will count and can not be replaced.
Try to number your picks. It makes my job a lot easier.
Posts should be in a format in which it is clear who you think will be the winner. For example: Player A OVER Player B or Player A DEF Player B and not Player A vs Player B or Player B loses to Player A.
Finally, please try to use the players’ real names and not their nicknames.


Ranking Points (B Masters)

Code:
1st ---- 275 ..... 5th ---- 160 ..... 9th ---- 100 ..... 13th --- 65
2nd ---- 225 ..... 6th ---- 140 ..... 10th --- 90 ...... 14th --- 60
3rd ---- 200 ..... 7th ---- 125 ..... 11th --- 80 ...... 15th --- 55
4th ---- 180 ..... 8th ---- 110 ..... 12th --- 70 ...... 16th --- 50

You can find the official PAW Rules and FAQ here

For the current PAW Rankings look here

You can find the current time in Sofia here

And finally, if the board is down and you need to get your picks through, please visit: http://www.pawforum.ovh.org/index.php

Good luck everyone and have fun!!

Re: Pick-A-Winner (PAW) #624 - Sofia ToC's

Not that it matters to me, but I thought only the Int'l Tournament champions qualify for this?

Smile... When you do, it may change someone's day


=Good luck to my favourite players: Mirjana Lucic, Elena Dementieva, Li Na, Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, Vera Zvonareva, Zheng Jie, Venus Williams =

Yes you are correct. I mistakingly told Emrys that this tournament was for players ranked 17 to 32 in the PAW Race. In January 2011, all PAW players were invited to vote on the qualification process for the TOC's and it was decided that the top 16 ranked International winners who didn't qualify for Istanbul would play here. Please see the thread here.

No doubt Emrys will correct everything when he is back online this evening.
