#002--Predict the Score--J&S Cup--Pick Your QF Matches!

PTS Tournament # 2-- J&S Cup in Warsaw

Hello all, and welcome to PTS: Predict the Score. For those of you that don't remember the rules or are brand new to the game here's a little run-down for you!

Making Predictions
Each tournament you must predict the score of WTA matches for that tournament. Based on the size of the WTA Draw, you will have to pick so many from each round. Now, the only predictions that you ABSOLUTELY MUST MAKE are from the first round. After the first round, you may make as few, or the maximum number in each round. So, if you forget to do round 2, you're not out, just make some for the QF's or SF's or etc. Here is a basic outline of the MAX number of picks you can make:

32 Player Draw:
1st Round: YOU MUST MAKE 7 PREDICTIONS
2nd Round: You CANNOT make more than 5 predictions
Quarterfinal: you CANNOT make more than 3 predictions
Semifinal: you CANNOT make more than 2 predictions
Final: 1 Prediction


Scoring Points
Now, for the points. For each match you predict, you will get points based on how accurately you predict the match. Here is a list of all the points you can get:

Correct winner, set #, and all scores: 35 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 3-6, 7-5, 6-2. actual score: 3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, set #, set scores, but the sets were in the wrong order: 25 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 6-2, 3-6, 7-5. actual score: 3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, set #, and one set score: 20 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 3-6, 6-1, 6-4. actual score: 3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, set #, and two set scores: 23 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 3-6, 7-5, 6-1. actual score: 3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner and correct set #, but no scores correct: 15 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 6-0, 4-6, 6-3. actual score: 3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, incorrect set #, and 1 set score correct: 12 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 7-5, 6-0. actual score: 3-6, 7-5, 6-2)

Correct winner, incorrect set #, and 2 set scores correct: also 12 points
(ex: your prediction: davenport d. sharapova 7-5, 6-2. actual score: 3-6, 7-5, 6-2)(this is also 12 points because the set # are incorrect..so basically correct winner but incorrect set # gets you 12 points)

Incorrect winner (scores and set # do not matter): 0 points
(ex: your prediction: sharapova d. davenport 6-3, 5-7, 6-1. actual score: davenport d. sharapova 3-6, 7-5, 6-2. even though you got 2 set scores right and the # of sets, it doesn't matter cause your winner is wrong.)

That can be a little confusing, but as time goes on you'll get a better hang of it!!

In order to play this game you do not have to commit or sign up anywhere...just make your first round picks and youll be automatically entered in the game!! We welcome all and no one will be turned away!!

Have fun, and enjoy!

Sincerely, your PTS runners:
I♥Lindsay and NyCPsU

hey! i don't think i will run a Estoril draw this week, cause we just don't have enough people yet! But, if you want me to update the standings and post them i will, since you ran the tournament the last time. Just let me know, i'm willing to help in anyway you want. And, oh yeah, we got our forum! . If you'd like i'll post the rules in it.


And, one more thing, i'd like to commit here!

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.
