Remember, every choice, whether good or bad, can be deadly...

Suicide China 2007: GuangzhOHHHHHHHHHHNOOOOOOOOOOOOO

2006 Final: watchdogfish (GBR) def. I Don't Know Who Because Shaun Was A Lazy Slore Busy ;) (DAY04 over DAY03)

THE OBJECTIVEChoose the winner of ONE main draw singles match EVERY DAY of the tournament.

THE CATCHYou may only choose each player ONCE throughout the tournament.
If your pick loses, you are OUT.

THE FINE PRINT
1. Your pick must be made before the match commences, or it will be deemed invalid.

2. Once posted, your pick is final and cannot be changed. Editing of posts is a serious felony in this game and will result in disqualification.

3. You always have to post/e-mail your pick, even if there is only one remaining player you can choose. No excuses, bitches. "I went home to my mountain village to visit my ageing parents and we have no electricity"? Forget it. "The government banned WTAworld access for 24 hours"? Too bad. "I had to make arrangements to give away my daughter"? Don't play suicide this week.

4. Back-ups: Clearly designate a player to be used in lieu of your pick if and only if there is a walkover or withdrawal BEFORE the match commences. Note that retirements do count as complete matches. Unused back-ups may be picked again.

5. You may only play one suicide tournament a week. Zero points will be awarded for the week if you participate in multiple tournaments.


Ranking Points for Suicide GuangzhOHHHHHHHNOOOOOOOO(Tier III)
DAY 01 - 1
DAY 02 - 9
DAY 03 - 18
DAY 04 - 30
DAY 05 - 100
DAY 06 - 125
DAY 06 - 138 (WITH PICK)
WINNING - 150

In the event that there are atleast 12 people and no one reaches DAY 06,

2nd Place - 85
1st Place - 120

Day 2 - Missing Persons' Report

:sad: :sad:

Our thoughts and prayers (as well as Mariah's, I assure you all) are with the families and loved ones of the following missing persons:

croat123
Potential Special Powers: Telling the future, knowledge of random facts (I mean, the dude/-tte panders to Jelena Pandzic).
Last seen: In this thread.
Suspected: Dead avec head cut open à la Sylar. Or maybe just sleeping in a ditch.

It happened in BeiJINXED last week, too. croat123 was nowhere to be found after picking eventual champ Szavay on day 2. Our theory is that after posting that pick, he had a vision (of love) of her coming back from match point down in the final, and knowing that he had no way of winning Suicide, tried to drink his despair away. Does this bode well for Song Shanshan?

Mama'sBoy
Potential Special Powers: None. Drinking buddies with croat123.
Last seen: Lamenting Julia Goerges being down in Luxy.
Suspected: Traumatised into madness after witnessing croat123's horrific murder. Or also in a ditch.

I can't speak to Mama'sBoy's Suicide form, but since Goerges did lose to Zvonareva yesterday, we can only imagine that he might be too depressed to think about GuangzhOHHHHNOOOOOO. Be strong! You can make it through the rain! The rest of us did!

adrygf
Potential Special Powers: Has a Spanish-speaking (and crazy, ass-kicking?) alter-ego.
Last seen: Posting pictures of Peng Shuai.
Suspected: Taken over said alter-ego who might be coming to kill us all. Watch out. :scared:

I'm not sure if anyone really wants a dry gf :tape: (well, not that I would know how that works *cough*) but we certainly wanted adrygf to be in this tournament. Unless adrygf's alter-ego wants to kill us all. In which case, please feel free to take the $2 million and run far, far away.

aussie_fan311
Potential Special Powers: We don't know. But we think he has some, or has witnessed someone with some.
Last seen: Professing love for Amélie Mauresmo.
Suspected: Memory removed by Haitian guy.

It's not that aussie_fan311 is dead, but his/her mother just called to tell us that her child cannot remember who she is! :sad: And similarly, her child has forgotten this larger family that is GuangzhOHHHHHHNOOOOOOO - not even posting a day 1 pick! Clearly, something is wrong. Support for Mauresmo further substantiates this theory, I mean, who in their right mind would like her? :o ;)

GoV&Rena
Potential Special Powers: We don't know.
Last seen: Advocating Serena Williams as the most impressive Slam run. Suspected: Clearly delusional from above testimony. May be lost and confused, running around naked. Keep your eyes peeled.

We hope that GoV&Rena has a spectacular comeback to this tournament much like his/her favourite players (before getting soundly beaten by, MH0861 three tournaments in a row, maybe ;)). But we're not sure.

riyao
Potential Special Powers: Bending the space-time continuum, or may be in possession of a Time Turner (we are in contact with the Ministry of Magic).
Last seen: In this very topic.
Suspected: Lost somewhere in space and time.

The only way riyao can manage that busy games schedule of his is by manipulating time... but that is a dangerous game to play. He could be fighting off dinosaurs or witnessing the apocalypse or something. Wherever you are, riyao, close your eyes and focus REALLY REALLY HARD! We have faith!! or turn the time turner or howevs that works.

Yarden
Potential Special Powers: Human Calculator
Last seen: Updating PYW Challengers.
Suspected: Going crazy with all those PYW calculations, whatevs

I'm getting lazy thinking of this one because I want to watch some Heroes before dinner. :p Sorry, Yarden, we still love you though. :hug: HE MADE IT! :D

Meanwhile, yay for all of us who are through to day 3! :D

Suicide Turns 100 At GuangzhOHHHHHHNOOOOOOO - Massive Celebrations Pot Luck Dinner

Ah, comrades! Due to budgetary constraints, we have had to move the venue of our player party from the Hyatt to this... experimental art space. Yes. That's it.

http://www.chinalaborwatch.org/images/DSC_0133.JPG

And who doesn't love a pot luck dinner? Screw the ten-course meal, I say, life is about TAKING CHANCES (thank you Celine, she is our entertainment for this momentous occasion, people... at least on MP3) on new experiences. MH0861 makes a mean pesto pasta, and I cooked some rice! What is a Chinese meal without rice, I say? NOTHING!

Speaking of new experiences, who has heard of Song Shan Shan? Is that pierce0415 raising his hand? No, no, we don't need a ten-minute account of her recent exploits in the Chinese Bush League Level 6B tournaments... anyone else? Well, I say, go right on ahead and pick her. I bet you will all be making picks you have NEVER made before this week! Isn't that exciting? Of course, it may lead to your tournament death, but... WHAT DO YOU SAY TO TAKING CHANCES (or did I use that line already?)?

Ho-hum. Well, in any case, there is a veritable bevy of matches to pick on day 1 (do you think they would be so spoiled for choice at Luxembourg, or even SEOUL, LudwigDvorak, you potential deserter? :mad: ) and an equally appealing array of more lukewarm salmonella-attracting dishes waiting on the grass! So grab a paper plate and make yourself comfortable.

This. Is Suicide GuangzhOHHHHHHHHHHHHHNOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

It happened in BeiJINXED last week, too. croat123 was nowhere to be found after picking eventual champ Szavay on day 2. Our theory is that after posting that pick, he had a vision (of love) of her coming back from match point down in the final, and knowing that he had no way of winning Suicide, tried to drink his despair away. Does this bode well for Song Shanshan?

Mama'sBoy
Potential Special Powers: None. Drinking buddies with croat123.
Last seen: Lamenting Julia Goerges being down in Luxy.
Suspected: Traumatised into madness after witnessing croat123's horrific murder. Or also in a ditch.

I can't speak to Mama'sBoy's Suicide form, but since Goerges did lose to Zvonareva yesterday, we can only imagine that he might be too depressed to think about GuangzhOHHHHNOOOOOO. Be strong! You can make it through the rain! The rest of us did!

adrygf
Potential Special Powers: Has a Spanish-speaking (and crazy, ass-kicking?) alter-ego.
Last seen: Posting pictures of Peng Shuai.
Suspected: Taken over said alter-ego who might be coming to kill us all. Watch out. :scared:

I'm not sure if anyone really wants a dry gf :tape: (well, not that I would know how that works *cough*) but we certainly wanted adrygf to be in this tournament. Unless adrygf's alter-ego wants to kill us all. In which case, please feel free to take the $2 million and run far, far away.

aussie_fan311
Potential Special Powers: We don't know. But we think he has some, or has witnessed someone with some.
Last seen: Professing love for Amélie Mauresmo.
Suspected: Memory removed by Haitian guy.

It's not that aussie_fan311 is dead, but his/her mother just called to tell us that her child cannot remember who she is! :sad: And similarly, her child has forgotten this larger family that is GuangzhOHHHHHHNOOOOOOO - not even posting a day 1 pick! Clearly, something is wrong. Support for Mauresmo further substantiates this theory, I mean, who in their right mind would like her? :o ;)

GoV&Rena
Potential Special Powers: We don't know.
Last seen: Advocating Serena Williams as the most impressive Slam run. Suspected: Clearly delusional from above testimony. May be lost and confused, running around naked. Keep your eyes peeled.

We hope that GoV&Rena has a spectacular comeback to this tournament much like his/her favourite players (before getting soundly beaten by, MH0861 three tournaments in a row, maybe ;)). But we're not sure.

riyao
Potential Special Powers: Bending the space-time continuum, or may be in possession of a Time Turner (we are in contact with the Ministry of Magic).
Last seen: In this very topic.
Suspected: Lost somewhere in space and time.

The only way riyao can manage that busy games schedule of his is by manipulating time... but that is a dangerous game to play. He could be fighting off dinosaurs or witnessing the apocalypse or something. Wherever you are, riyao, close your eyes and focus REALLY REALLY HARD! We have faith!! or turn the time turner or howevs that works.

Yarden
Potential Special Powers: Human Calculator
Last seen: Updating PYW Challengers.
Suspected: Going crazy with all those PYW calculations, whatevs

I'm getting lazy thinking of this one because I want to watch some Heroes before dinner. :p Sorry, Yarden, we still love you though. :hug: HE MADE IT! :D

Suicide China: OHHHHHHHHVERRRRRRR

Comrades! We have come to the end of an era. Sort of. At least, the end of Suicide China 2007. I know it hasn't been the most update-filled end of tournament, but it has been hecticity in the world of Randriantastic! so I do apologise.

I really want to thank all of you who participated in GuangzhOHHHHHNOOOOOO - I know it looked bleak from the start, but (most of) you have all been rewarded with lasting past day 1 this week, compared to other tournaments which had 'stronger draws' etc etc. So, congratulations! (even if the points probably won't count towards your ranking because they are so insignificant... but that's hardly the point)

So, without further ado, here is the breakdown of our place-getters:

Honourable mentions:
10. Mama's Boy - Part of the Olaru, Where-r-u massacre (well, as massacreish as one gets with 20 participants). Picked Obziler (3), Yan (10) and Cibulkova (3) for a total of 16 games lost over first 3 days.

9. fencer - See above. Picked Molik (10), VRP (1) and Cibulkova (3) for a total of 14 games lost over first 3 days.

QFists:
8. LudwigDvorak - Also see above. Picked AMG (7), VRP (1) and Cibulkova (3) for a total of 11 games lost over first 3 days.

7. Neeemz - Ditto again. Picked Obziler (4), VRP (1) and Cibulkova (3) for a total of 8 games lost over first 3 days (and now I'm being as repetitive as Tyra in ANTM, so I will stop.)

6. pierce0415 - Picked AMG on day 4, who won more games than Olaru, which hence puts him ahead. (I bet I'm doing this wrong, but whatevs, it makes sense in my head. Plus I think he gets bonus points for bringing technology to Suicide by Blackberrying in his picks everyday.)

5. Ballbasher - The one of the trio who got kicked out by Ana-crazy-a Rodionova to miss out on a SF spot. Even with Pin dropping only 2 games on day 2 and a double bagel from eventual champ V-Raz on day 3, Cibulkova losing a set was the killer here. (Medina 7 + Pin 2 + Razzano 0 + Cibulkova 12 = 21, one set lost)

SFists
4. GoV&Rena - Luckily for him/her, Yan lost 10 games on day 2 but not a set. (Obziler 4 + Yan 10 + Cibulkova 3 + Razzano 4 = 21, no sets lost)

3. Law_ - After a shaky day 1 thanks to Miss Alicia Molik, Law_'s picks only lost 8 games in days 2 through to 4. (Molik 10 + VRP 1 + Cibulkova 3 + Razzano 4 = 18)

Finalist
meelis13 makes it two finals in two weeks, but falls at the last hurdle in both cases. :sad: :sad: We hear Svetlana Kuznetsova is looking for MSN buddies at How2WinATourney?Avec3WOs@msn.com.

Winner
A late entrant, Tennace sneaked through the draw and won his third career Suicide title. :worship: And we thought Julie Ditty would never become part of a winning Suicide run.

Congratulations to all our place-getters! If you have any qualms about the QF thing, umm, too bad. :p See you all three other people in Suicide Tokyo!! ;)
