[VOTE AGAIN] PYW Hobart 2015 | 2nd Round

PYW Hobart

Welcome to Hobart, Australia. The International series also continue down under as the Hobart International gets underway in Tasmania. Just like in Sydney this week, the defending champion will not be here to defend her title, as Peng Shuai elected not to play Hobart this year. Just like in Sydney too, all the aussie hopes will therefore rely on the defending runner-up, this time Casey Dellacqua, who will be looking to score another victory on the international level. Two other former champions, KlaraKoukalova & Elena Vesnina, will also be attending and attempting to regain their crowns.

How To Play

Playing PYW [Pick-Your-Winner] is simple, for each match proposed, just vote for the player you like best. Each vote will count as one game. You may only vote once during the first 24 hours.
If a round is stuck due to a lack of votes, two feature can be activated:
After 24h : "VOTE AGAIN" : anybody who has already voted a first time can vote again 24 hours after the first vote has been posted. Note that in any case, between your two votes there must be at least 1 other vote AND at least 1 hour.
After 48h: : "DOUBLE POINTS" Any vote after 48h counts for two points.
After 60h: : "SUDDEN DEATH" If a round is still not completed, we'll apply the sudden death rule. If a match isn't over, whoever leads will win the match, if it's a tie, the next vote will decide each match.

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
