Rules
Choose
 Each participant must choose 6 different players participating in the tournament before main draw begins and mark the round the player will advance.
 The 6 players must be arranged in the fashion where they are in
3 hands (groups).
 If you choose a qualifier before qualifying is finished, identify the draw spot. Q1 = first Q on the draw
 You may not select a LL as one of your players. If the Q chosen on the list happens to be a LL, the next Q down the list will be used.
 You
may not change your picks once you have posted.
Hands
 Hand 1 = 1 player
 Hand 2 = 2 players
 Hand 3 = 3 players
 1 back up player may be listed for each player in case there's a withdrawal. No duplicates.

 Each hand receives points according to the following chart
Code:
Size W F SF QF R16 R32 R64 R128

 Chosen players who received BYE and lost in their first match will receive 0 points.
 Each hand will receive points according to the the round each player chosen lost in the tournament, though
 Hand 2 must beat Hand 1, or it's invalid. If it's a valid hand, points (x2).
 Hand 3 must beat Hands 1 & 2, or it's invalid. If it's a valid hand, points (x3).

Perfect Hands: Receiving best possible points before hand bonuses applied will have total points (x2).
 No perfect hands bonuses will be awarded for tournaments in RR format.

Invalid hands receive 0 points.
Tournament Tie Break (in case there are participants who receive equal points)
 Number of valid hands, if equal
 Total points acquired in Hand 2 & Hand 3, if equal
 Total points acquired in Hand 3, if equal
 Total points acquired in Hand 2, if equal
 Number of correct rounds per player named, if equal
 Lesser of deviation points earned for the rounds, if equal
 Greater of total rankings combined for the six players chosen, if equal
 Whoever posted their hands first
Deviation Points  Further Explanation
You will earn deviation points for each incorrect round predicted. Using AO 2013 as an example:
coolfish1103 picked Ivanovic for Round 32, but she reached R16, that's equivalent of 1 deviation point
Drake1980 picked Kerber for QF, but she reached R16, that's also equivalent of 1 deviation point
SAISAIGOAT picked S.Williams for W, but she reached QF, that's equivalent of 3 deviation points
Each participant will predict the rounds the six players, so total deviation points will be the sum
Total Ranking Points  Further Explanation
If we can still not find a result by using deviation points, we will use the total ranking points of the six players combined. We will award risky choices by awarding the greater sum of the total ranking points.
