Pick Thread Rules & Participants
Welcome to the JJ Forum Pick Thread - Up and running for 2009!!!!

Pick Thread Rules
Very simple - For any tourney we run the pick for, take the draw and pick the winner, by how many sets
And then hopefully we get to pick JJ's progress through to a successful final...
Respond with your picks in this thread and we'll update as we go...:bounce:

Points

5 for correctly guessing how far JJ will progress in a tourney
Submit Round Number, QF, SF, F (i.e. she gets there but loses) or TITLE
Picks open from the date the draw is announced and closed the day before tourney starts

3 for the winning player
+2 for the exact (winning) scoreline (sets only)
0 if your pick loses!!
Picks open from when the OOP comes out and closes based on time zones before the start of play

IF JJ goes out in the earlier rounds/upto Semi Final - we can run the pick for the Semi's and eventual winner ... same rules will apply!

We leave Moscow knowing that Irina is still with us, but at last she qualified for Doha! More about Doha picks soon. Get ready for the exciting end to the 2009 Pick season!

Congratulations to Moscow Champions - Hashim and Wayn! I'm still #1, but all will be decided in Doha, which will have new exciting pick format!

Love,
Master & Commander - Alex

Welcome to Doha Season Ending Championships

We have some new rules for this tournament that will probably stay for the next season, too. I'd like to call it a Pick ROADMAP! I will add few more changes and announce the new pick rules after Doha. This is it for now...

1. Change(s) in points distribution.
Correct prediction of a match winner is now worth 2 points and correct set scoreline prediction is worth 3 points. Next season tournaments of different level will have different points distribution as well, with Grand Slams being the most valuable. That should spice things up a bit.

2. Tournament commitment.
- If you commit to a tournament by predicting JJ's progress, each round of the tournament you committed to becomes mandatory for you. If you miss a round you will be awarded with negative points: -1 point for each round missed at that tournament.

- If you don't commit to a tournament, you can still pick for each round, but you will be penalized with -3 points for missing the Progress Pick. As this will be your non-commitment tournament you will not be extra penalized for any missed round.

3. SEC rules.
- For this season all pickers will be allowed to pick, but next year only the 10 best pickers will be eligible to take part at the SEC. This should motivate pickers to be more consistent during the season 'cos only the best will be able to fight for this prestigious title. If a top 10 player doesn't commit to Doha, a WC will be awarded to the next best picker that hasn't qualified.

- You will be picking for all 15 (RRx12, SFx2, F) matches at this tournament, not only JJ's matches. There will be 3 picks a day during RR stage, 2 picks on a semifinal day and 1 final pick on the last day of the Championships.

- Once Doha groups are decided, you will be reminded to pick for JJ's Progress and thus commit to the SEC. You will have following options for Doha PP:

RR(0) - Jelena will go 0-3 in her group and fail to qualify for the SF.
RR(1) - Jelena will go 1-2 in her group and fail to qualify for the SF.
RR(2) - Jelena will go 2-1 in her group, but fail to qualify for the SF (unlucky Jeja).
SF - Jelena will reach semifinal.
F - Jelena will reach final.
Title - Jelena will win 2009 Doha SEC.

They're not that harsh. Only -1 for a missed round/match. :shrug:
Only -3 for starting tournament late.

Yes, we pick for all the matches. Hopefully the OOP will be available soon. But you'll have to be very fast 'cos there'll be 3 matches to pick for each day during RR stage, day after day...

And additionally -5 points for Zoja because she didn't inform the Managing Board of the JJ Clinic that she'l leaving her position. :rolleyes:

Well I am. You'll all have to kill off yourselves from now on.
If Jelena doesn't want to do her job neither do I. I'm off to find myself a waterpolo player, I don't want to waste my time anymore on this :weirdo:

No no no, this is too much for me too bear, I'm officially a hater now - she's become a brainless ballbasher (and a bad one at that) + gives brainless comments + is grumpy on the tennis court while is all smiles during the stupid photoshoots. Why would I like such a player?

Punish me, Alex, but I just can't pick this stupid final. :sobbing:

:awww: Punish me, too. This is the last thing I wanted to see in Doha, an all Williams Brothers final. :hysteric:

This is all Sveta's fault. JJ would have beaten Demented and played final with Rena. Sveta :ras: http://img518.imageshack.us/img518/3193/finger.gif

Boohoo, poor you! You think it's easy for me to run picks after Jelena's losses?

Well, the pick season is officially finished. Thank you all for taking part in this, especially those of you who pick for every tournament. See y'all next year, hope you'll like the new Pick Roadmap.

Congratulations to Hashim who won Doha with an impressive total of 50 points! :bowdown:

I'm the year end #1. Again! :bowdown:

Too bad Jelena can't dominate tennis. Hopefully she'll get rid of her idiotic ways next season.

Love,
Master & Commander - Alex

Please, you barely deserved #2 even! Had Mikey not forgotten to make Doha PP, he wouldn't have got negative points and would have ended the season in front of you!

You didn't even win a single title this season. Don't make us laugh. :lol:

Good luck with carrying the mantle of the Picks hence forth, my young padawan... I look at my modest rankings, and I smile... and then I think of JJ... and then I frown and stomp about.

And so ends the year :lol:

Yeah, thanks everyone and big thanks to Rozzie for starting this and running it for so long. Picks have become really popular, and the only reason I thought of not running it anymore is Jelena's idiocy. It's not as fun when she's not reaching semis and finals as often as before. That's why I decided to shake things up with the new rules - just to make picks more interesting for the next season.

When I formulate new rules I'll post them here. Rozzie, you should then copy them into the opening post of the thread.

well to be honest - with real life (without glitter) as it is, I can't be doing with the regular updates of the Thread title, much less the rules... so.... perhaps it's best is Yasmine locks it when she can and you get to run with your own... :kiss:

I was asked to lock this thread. I'm glad Alex is going to carry on next season, thanks Ros for all the effort you've put into making this a fun game. Despite all the trouble you may have felt, I'm sure it's well appreciated by most here. :hug::worship:

I'll let someone else conclude before I lock it maybe.

So maybe I should allow myself the last word... it was fun, sometimes. Less so when JJ was playing like a bleatey, boundy goat than the GOAT she ought to be...

Thanks to all my friends here - I'm not sure how much time I'll have anymore to dip in the forum so hopefully I'll at least be able to drop in to Alex's picks...

Yasmine... lights out now, if you would be so kind :kiss:
