Cool The JJ Forum Pick Championships (Vol 3) ★ :-) ★

Pick Thread Banner made by Louisa



Hello, everyone.
Welcome to The JJ Forum Pick Thread. For each tournament JJ enters, we pick how far she will progress and we pick the winner and set scoreline for each match she plays. We always pick for semifinals and final, no matter if Jelena gets that far.
Enjoy your stay and have fun, but have in mind that this is a prestigious competition.
So, read the NEW RULES carefully before you get too excited.
Trash-talk, bitchin' & drama are always welcome.

Master & Commander of The Pick Thread,
Alex

PICK THREAD HALL OF FAME


Since I can't edit the original post anymore, here's the continuation...

2011 Leaderboard



The new Hall of Fame members in 2011 are:


Мотя. (2011 SE #1 and 2 MM titles),
Potato (Titleless #1),
Kylger (1 title),
JJ's biatch (1 title),
JJ Expres (1 title),
Winnerpova (1 title),
sav001 (1 title)


THE 2011 SEASON RULES


Any JJ fan/supporter (reetard included) can play this game and join in at any time of the year, but....

1. Tournament commitment
Committing to a tournament means picking how far will JJ progress at the next tournament she plays. Progress Pick is opened as soon as the draw becomes available. Usually we pick for her 1st match at the same time.

Consistency is heavily rewarded in The Pick Thread, so try to commit to as many tournaments as you can. Grand Slam (GS) and Premium Mandatory (PM) tournaments are mandatory for ALL pickers and you will be penalized with negative points for each Pick missed at those tournaments. If you forget about Progress Pick at GS and PM tourneys you will receive a PP Penalty (-3 points); in that case you will not be further penalized for missing round picks at that tournament - RP Penalty (-1 point).

2. Points distribution & Penalties
Pickers earn points for correctly guessing how far will JJ progress (Progress Pick) and for correctly guessing the winner and set scoreline of each individual match (Round Pick). The amount of points depends on the level of tournament. Pickers get negative points (Penalty) for missing Progress Pick or Round Pick(s) at GS and PM level tournaments. There are no penalties at other level tournaments.

Tournaments & Points

a. Grand Slam & Premier Mandatory
Progress Pick:
+10 for a correct Progress Pick
-3 PP Penalty for missing the Progress Pick (no additional penalties for each round pick missed)
Round Pick:
+0 if your pick loses
+3 for correctly picking the winner of a round match
+3 for correctly picking winning scoreline (sets)
-1 RP Penalty if you miss the Round (Match) Pick

b. Premier 5 Series
There are no penalties for missing PP and/or RP
Progress Pick:
+7 for a correct Progress Pick
Round Pick:
+0 if your pick loses
+2 for correctly picking the winner of a round match
+2 for correctly picking winning scoreline (sets)

c. Premier Series
There are no penalties for missing PP and/or RP
Progress Pick:
+5 for a correct Progress Pick
Round Pick:
+0 if your pick loses
+2 for correctly picking the winner of a round match
+2 for correctly picking winning scoreline (sets)

d. International Series
There are no penalties for missing PP and/or RP
Progress Pick:
+3 for a correct Progress Pick
Round Pick:
+0 if your pick loses
+1 for correctly picking the winner of a round match
+1 for correctly picking winning scoreline (sets)

e. Season Ending Championships
The top 12 pickers after regular season will qualify for the SEC. It's a prestigious bonus tournament to determine SE Number One, so the pickers can only gain points (there are no penalties at this tournament). Participants pick for ALL the matches in their group.

Progress Pick (Only if JJ qualifies):
+3 for correctly guessing the number of JJ's RR wins (0/1/2/3)
+2 for correctly guessing JJ's progress (RR/SF/F/Title)
Round Pick:
+2 for correctly picking the winner of a match
+2 for correctly picking winning scoreline (sets)

3. Pick Closing Time, Reminders & Tables
The picks are closed on the day of JJ's match. The exact closing time depends on the scheduled start of JJ's match (or semifinal/final match). I will often post Reminders for each pick to help you out. I might not always have the time or resources to "officially" open the pick or post reminders, so you should always have these general rules in mind. Any pick posted after the closing time will not be counted.
I will regularly (i.e. when I have the time) post Result, Tournament Summary and Leaderboard Tables.


THANK YOU & GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
