2012 Men's Olympic Games Bracket Challenge
« on: July 26, 2012, 03:59:22 PM »
The Game

Pretty simple game format, most of you have filled out brackets before. This is just a one time thing, you fill out, and submit your picks now and just watch the tournament and see how you are doing by the end. The Pick 'em game on the other hand is more up-to-date and exciting. Nonetheless this is a great game to see what each of us feels before the start of the tournament.

Picks are due before play begins on SATURDAY



I will have to create a new game here  :rofl_2:

How To Play:
1.  Pick your 8 QFists true to the draw and rank them : Gold medal - Silver medal - bronce medal - SF - QF - QF- QF- QF


2. Format: to simplify my work, follow this format--last name only; no comments*, emoticons,
puncuation and do not indicate their rank--it's understood they are in order (see 1 above).
*place all comments at the bottom of your list. Follow this format.

Roddick
Federer
Hewitt
Grosjean
Agassi
Ljubicic
Nalbandian
Hrbaty


Scoring


Gold Medal - 200 pts
Silver Medal - 140 max pts
Bronce Medal - 90 max pts
SF - 50 max pts
QF - 30 max pts
3R - 15 max pts
2R - 7 max pts
Main Entry - 1 pt



How To Win
The person with the most Total Points wins.

Tie-breaker
Pick 3 additional players and rank them 1-3. If your #1 advances further than his/her #1, you win; similarly for #2 and #3.

This is to avoid an outcome like 2007 USO, where the game ended in a tie for 1st because identical picks were submitted and we didn't have a tie-breaker in place.

Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.

Good luck to all. I also expected more participants, but the advantage for those who participated with fewer participants is that it is easier to win.
