Tennis Pentathlon #34, Miami --Congrats Hindrance and Dynamo!

Tennis Pentathlon #34 -- Miami



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.

Re: Tennis Pentathlon #34, Miami -- All players are welcome!

There is a new rule for late sending:

I accept the copy of tipping or TT picks as a late pick (without any change). (if it is copied to me before I post results in the following morning)
