I'd like to hear opinions of other players about this.

I accept these suggestions in principal, although I feel somewhat uncomfortable that the only one who immediately stands to lose from this change has not weighed in (ronim1)

I will make all the corrections later in the week. I also want to update the first post with all the rules that were added since the game was first announced. Don't have the time now.

Re: New Game - Who will last longer?

Even if the rules needed some fine-tuning, I want to commend you again for coming up with the idea for this game and sparking some interest in an otherwise dying sub-forum

I'm losing ground fast...
That 8/8 was too good to be true.

Re: New Game - Who will last longer?

Khazaniuk's loss will put Wert. at the top of our rankings next week no matter who else wins.
So, either Wert. comes back to play some more (hopefully), or he will eventually be topped by others only because of the added rule about number of games played (but it will take some time).

I think that means that Roni is the winner this week (amending his near-win last week, also betting on Keren).
A bad week for the Israeli players to say the least
3 wins (one of them in an all-Israeli match, Tour upset over Khazaniuk) and 11 losses in the main draws of 10K and 25K is hardly inspiring.
Patiuk and the nearly retired Masuri deserve some credit though for taking heavily favored opponents to 3 sets.

Re: New Game - Who will last longer?

I don't think I should give any points, no one picked Tour.
The points are based on percent correct from the actual tennis player who lasted longer,
not who lasts longer among us.

So no points for the players of our game this week

Re: New Game - Who will last longer?

I really don't like the fact that a non active player who played only 3 times will be at the top of these rankings for many weeks.
I've accelerated a little bit the time it will take to catch up with him:
5 game difference is needed if %right is 90%
10 game difference is needed if %righ is 80%

still no change in rankings because of this rule this time, but I hope it will help in future weeks

Re: New Game - Who will last longer?

Next week I see no Israeli players in the main draw acceptance lists but plenty of qualifiers in the 25k that will take place in Netanya, Israel. Also I expect WCs will be given to Israelis to enter the main draw, so a contest is still expected.
