    The Rules

    1. Every day of the tournament that day's matches will be posted. You pick one player who you think is going to win. It's a knock out-system: if the player you picked wins, you're through to the next round. If he loses, you're out.

    2. Till the round of 16, you have to pick one player per day. In the round of 16, quarters, semis and finals you pick one player per round.

    3. During a tournament, you can pick a player only ONCE. Obviously it's important to make smart choices in order to get far. If you somehow have no players left to pick, you're out as well.

    4. You can't pick a player from a match that has started already.

    5a. If the player you picked retires during the match, you're out. If he retires before the match, you're allowed to change your pick.

    5b. If the opponent of the player you picked retires, it counts like a win. However, you can't pick a player whose opponent had already retired from the tournament.

    6. If you want to change you pick, make a new post quoting the old pick. Edited posts containing picks will not be taken into account.

    I first thought "wow, I got 140 points for Shanghai?" Then I realized how awful I am.

    I'm in.

    Oh actually, seeing as I have money and I'm a friggin' idiot, the winner gets a reel of Forten Nylon 16. Or if I'm running low on cash after this fall break week, any of the cheap sets, not the multipacks though.

    I'll figure something out about that and post it after Basel finshes.

    The normal top 8 WTF tournament would continue....but an additional tournament for everyone including the top 8 Is the problem?

    There could be a bonus/multiplier for the top 8 if you want to keep it simple. While the max for everybody else is 1500, the top 8 could go up to 2500 (multiplier of five-thirds).

    One of these days I will win a tournament and collect string from you.

    Pretty cool that you're still offering prizes though. That's fantastic.

    They really didn't take this sudden death game into consideration when making today's schedule.
