Summary:

There are 2 ways to stand out from a pack of challengers – that is go for some surprises that few other players pick, or play it extremely safe and “gain” picks through other’s incorrect picks. Two players – raquel & nitsansh adopted these two different tactics and both were successful to varying degrees. Any player would be stoked with a 12-1 win-loss record, which raquel compiled – heavily relying on the match favourites to win, similarly S-T-E-V-E didn’t get one incorrect pick from his 12, but both failed to scrap into the top 5. Last year’s Sydney saw matija-seles being awarded for playing it extremely safe.

There are a few tournaments that turn out to have all favourites to win, with Sydney 2004 & Philadelphia 2003 being among them. Nitsansh practically won the tournament on two picks – Peng over Myskina (only 2 others PAWed this) and Peng over Petrova (less than half PAWed this). These two picks set him from the pack and the rest of his picks were basically irrelevant – as shown by his rather poor 9/4 win-loss of his 13 PAW’s. Playing like raquel & S-T-E-V-E, last year’s Tokyo winner geegables managed to pip 2nd spot by differing from the purely safe routine by PAWing Peng over Petrova. Promising DaNieLa_RoCkZ did well by finishing 3rd and Nathan27’s 4th place prevents him from dropping down the ranks after last year’s final pts come off. All in all, nitsansh victory again proves – to win PAW – you don’t have to be consistent through out, you just have to stand out.

Betting Summary

Lots of money won by the Bookmakers this week,with outsider Nitsansh passing the post in front.
Favourite Ghosts after a good opening match,sank without trace as did most of the seeded players:fiery:
In particular the great SpikeyAidanm was a big disappointment,as he was last week.Proving again its difficult to combine playing with running the Tour.
