PICK-A-WINNER (PAW) - INTRODUCTION

Welcome to Pick-A-Winner (PAW), the Predictions game!

The rules are simple: Just pick the winners of any 13 Main Draw matches. You choose the matches and you pick the winners. You get more points for picking low-ranked winners than for picking high-ranked winners.


Example

The Fixtures and Scoring Points:

Justine HENIN........... vs Barbara SCHETT.......... (6-16)
Amanda COETZER.......... vs Amelie MAURESMO......... (14-7)
Anna KOURNIKOVA......... vs Serena WILLIAMS......... (23-4)
Martina HINGIS.......... vs Lisa RAYMOND............ (5-19)
Tina PISNIK............. vs Sandrine TESTUD......... (18-6)
Henrieta NAGYOVA........ vs Arantxa SANCHEZ-VICARIO. (12-8)

The numbers after the fixtures are the Scoring Points. These are the respective points you score for picking each player. So if you pick HENIN to beat SCHETT and HENIN wins then you score 6 points. But if you pick SCHETT to win and SHE wins then you score 16 points. Of course, if you pick SCHETT and she loses you score nothing at all.

Pick-a-Winner is played in the PAW thread in the Tournament forums. Anyone can play, any time.
