It could give you an advantage because you could have wanted to predict for a Day 1 match but were too lazy. You could have wanted to pick "Djokovic def Nieminen in 2, 1 hour", but you saw that Nieminen outlasted Djokovic in 3, and changed to predict for a different match.

How does this make sense?  :confused1:

If you wanted to predict that match then you wouldn't be able to watch it and then if the result isn't what you expected not choose that match... You have to predict the match before it happens  :)~ :)~

I know this sounds confusing, but I hope you understand it  :)~

I know you have to predict-the-match before it happens. I'm saying if someone was going to predict Djokovic def Nieminen 2-0, but then tripped on the stairs and fell unconscious. And by the time they woke up the match was over and they saw the result, and Nieminen beat Djokovic in 3. Then they were like "whatever" and predicted for a DIFFERENT match that wasn't over yet. :) I'm not saying that's good, but it happens

 :no-no-no: :no-no-no: :no-no-no: :no-no-no: :no-no-no:

I'm certain that in the -short- history of PTM, no one has ever though of picking a certain match, fell unconscious, and then woke up and predicted a different match. So I'm not sure why it's relevant to bring it up?  :rofl_2:

Also, if they saw the result, then they have no choice but to predict a different match. It's not like it'd be a sneaky way of cheating  :rofl_2:

Litotes forgot to pick this time. Both Clash and Freaky got jackpots on Nadal-Matosevic  :gleam:

I didn't forget to pick, check the third from last post on page 1. My picks are after a bit of text. If this is inconvenient I apologize, won't do it again.
