The rules are:

1.) You can earn a maximum of 10 points for choosing the winner and the right runner up.Predicting the right winner/right runner up gives you a max of 10 points . If two people predict the right runner up you get 5 points (10/2) and so on. Minimum is 1 point.

Points to use for correct W/RU picks

1 player - 10
2 players - 5
3 players - 3.5
4 players - 2.5
5 players - 2
6 players - 2
7 players - 1.5
8 players - 1.5
9 players and more - 1

2.) If you predicted winner is eventually the runner-up you can get the point for correct W/RU at most. (Example: Xian chooses Jelena Dokic as the winner. Eventual winner is Alex Stevenson and points will be like this). Same rule in effect if you pick a player as a runner up who is the champion.

Points to use at reverse picks,picking W as RU,RU as W.

1 player - 5 (Point for correct W/RU pick)
2 players - 2.5
3 players - 2
4 players - 1.5
5 players and more - 1

**But the picks which is at the other way round,player get one point less than actual W/RU. (See the sample chart)

3.) Picking a player in qualifying who will reach to the Main Draw ;

Number of players to choose are ;

For 128, 64 and 32 player draws - 3 picks
For 16 player draws - 2 picks

*If you pick a player to qualify correct you will get 2 points, if you pick all 3 correct,it will be 6 points and all points are independent from other players' picks.

*If your pick can reach to the final and wining it means = 2 points extra.
*If you pick can reach to the final and losing it means = 1 point extra.

*You can vote for player if she havent played a match at the event still. But please try to pick before any of the qualifying matches begin.

* You can pick qualifiers if the draw is not available yet, if you can't place picks in time, between the release of the draw and the first round results. In that case you can add back-up picks, in case one of your chosen picks is not in the draw. One of your picks will be replaced by the back-up pick, in the order you post the back-up picks. The maximum amount of back-up picks is the amount of picks allowed for the qualifying draw.

*If your pick/picks withdraw you can change your pick if there is players to pick in R1/who hasnt played a match in the tournement still.

4.) Winner/RU Voting deadline is the announce of the first results of the Main Draw.Your winner/RU pick wont count if you vote after the announce of any of the first round results.

5.) If your winner/RU pick lose in qualifying,you cant change your vote. If your winner/RU pick withdraw before the announce of any of the R1 results you can change your picks.If your winner/RU pick withdraw after the announce of any of the R1 results you cant change your picks.

7.) You should mention your picks clearly to not make any confusion about the player.
Have fun playing this event

I was damn tired yesterday so kind of saw these mistakes coming.

Will check all and edit soon.
I have a question: Is there a limit to the amount of tournaments you can play in a week? If I look at the calendar and see the week of the 22nd of october; 5 10K's, 1 100K and 8 25K's... seems a bit much?

I didnt think about the limit.
