Opening post thread - for tournament managers only!
If you are running a tipping tournament, simply copy the following text into the first post of your tournament's thread and add some finishing touches like a title, last year's results, pick the colors, fonts etc. Just make sure you erase the point distributions to leave the one of the category of your event (if you're running a Premier event, you leave points for Premier etc.). I will update this post with every rule change that is agreed upon.HOW TO PLAY
- - - - -
Playing Tipping is very easy. I will post the schedule and then you just tip who you think will win. Just type "in" to play (this will make my life easier but if you forgot to post "in" this is not the end of the world).
e.g If the schedule was...
Ivanovic vs Li
V. Williams vs Pironkova
This is how you would tip...
It is only main draw singles matches.
If there's 1 point played in a match then the match counts (walkover or a pre-match retirement doesn´t count).
Pick for each match should be posted before the start of that match.
For the final match you will also need to guess how many games will be played. This will work as a tiebreaker.
Do NOT edit your post. If you want to change your picks do it in a new post. Edited posts will make all your picks invalid.
Also DO NOT make changes to your picks by quoting your previous post; this will make all of your changes invalid.
HOW TO SOLVE TIES
1. The player who guessed the winner.
2. The player who is closest in games guessed.
3. The player who posted the fastest post in the final. If no one posted in the final, points from previous rounds are examined going backwards, until a clear advantage of one player is confirmed.
SCORING AND ADDITIONAL POINTS
First Round = 1 point per correct tip.
Every additional round = one point more than for the previous, per correct tip.
Extra points: 1 per correct tip, regardless of round; added to the sum of tournament points before bonus points.
Tournament of Champions
Your best 16 results the past 52 weeks will count towards your ranking. There are no mandarory tournaments.
