View Full Version : Important: Proposed Idea for withdrawals for LA

Nov 7th, 2004, 07:54 PM
Guys, with the End of Year Championships this week, I feel it's important that we have some players on reserve, in case any of the top 16 in the race do not make any picks.

I sent a message to sandg who agreed with me. crazillo and Hantuchov have also agreed with me. I suggest we have a system like this:

- The players ranked 17-20 in the race are allowed to make picks, BUT only add them to the League Table after the championships end, in case somebody in the top 16 doesnt pick.

For example, if one person hasn't picked by the end of the tournament, u could then add the 17th ranked player to the league table. And as I said, a reserve player would only be added in the circumstance that somebody in the top 16 hasn't made a pick by the end of the tournament.

Please give me some feedback guys whether you agree, thanks :wavey:

By why not allow WCs rather than 17-20??

Nov 7th, 2004, 08:56 PM
WCs wouldn't work, it's based on the next people in line who would have qualified :wavey:

Guys, the top 16 qualifiers have now been confirmed:

001.(001).Hantuchov........BRA.. 1573. _13. _13. .31
002.(002).WTA Handicapper..GBR.. 1430. _15. _14. .35
003.(003).sandg............INA.. 1316. _27. _22. .35
004.(004).mypapa_je........INA.. 1262. _15. _12. .33
005.(005).bbypk............ESP.. 1233. _11. _10. .34
006.(006).K&J fan..........BEL.. 1218. _16. _12. .35
007.(007).ghosts...........BUL.. 1212. _22. _19. .36
008.(008).Je_ne_sais_quoi..SIN.. 1156. _11. _10. .36
009.(009).kimclijsters4everBEL.. 1138. __6. __4. .28
010.(010).kafelek..........POL.. 1132. __0. __0. .21
011.(011).spencercarlos....VEN.. 1125. __8. __6. .32
012.(012).bionic71.........AUS.. 1120. _26. _22. .36
013.(013).Geoffry..........BEL.. 1101. __7. __6. .31
014.(014).SpikeyAidanm.....AUS.. 1092. _18. _17. .36
015.(015).Pintaled.........AUS.. 1084. _20. _16. .35
016.(018).andrew_uk........GBR.. 1063. _12. _10. .35

So in effect, the reserve players would be:

017.(016).camoya...........ISR.. 1056. _11. _10. .32
018.(017).saab95...........RUS.. 1051. _14. _12. .33
019.(020).crazillo.........GER.. 1007. __4. __3. .27
020.(019).jrm..............SLO.. _995. _17. _15. .35

If these 4 reserve players make PAWs as usual, and then if any1 in top 16 forgets to pick, they weill automatically replace them in order, ie camoya then saab95 and so on. A reserve player will only be used if any of the top 16 fail to make a pick. They will also only be added if needed when the tournament has ended.

Against the idea

Sounds like a good idea. It would be like a player is injured and an alternate plays.

Nov 8th, 2004, 02:28 PM
I can run LA as well if sandg needs a break. :)

Nov 8th, 2004, 06:02 PM
it's o.k.

Nov 8th, 2004, 07:48 PM
Against the idea

Can you tell why? I mean, suppose at the end of the tournament a few didn't make a pick - it would be extremely unfair on the next players who could have played instead.

I just see the scheduled of tournament that final on Monday (Tuesday in here).
I will take long holiday (far from my home) this week, maybe I can't online on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday.
Others person can handle this tournament because only 16 players and 7 picks and I will give Scoring Points formula if he/she didn't know it.

Nov 8th, 2004, 11:12 PM
OK sandg, I will run the tournament then. :)

Nov 9th, 2004, 03:04 PM
If you are too busy Aidan I can do it, too. No exams this week.

Nov 9th, 2004, 07:42 PM
I will also be able to help out if needed :wavey:
