Welcome to Day 1 of the 2019 Miami Men’s Suicide Pool!


You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the men’s event (NOT one each round). Once you use a player, you may never use him again. Please keep track of your own picks

It is very important you follow the schedule of play for the day posted below. This may be the first round, but only half of the draw plays Wednesday.

Post your Day 1 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in Miami, rain or shine. For Day 1, that’s Wednesday (March 20), 10 AM ET/7 AM PT. Do not be late. This thread will be locked at the deadline, so please don't wait until the last minute or you may find it locked when you hit "post.


Since the object of the game is to pick a player that you are sure is going to win on that day, should your player withdraw, he obviously cannot win his match. You do not get a substitute (lucky loser). You are choosing a player, not a spot in the draw. You might want to scout your player and make sure there is not a known injury or illness issue.


Thanks for joining us! And good luck!

The matches for Day 1 are from all over the draw. The only visible reasoning is that none of these matches include qualifiers.

The first men's main draw match doesn't start until noon, so taking a chance and posting this to see if I can qualify. Totally understand if you won't allow this pick because it's past 10 am Eastern Time. I didn't notice today's rain-related OOP change of time. (Is it worth anything that most people think Indiana should be on Central Time?)

If this were a real suicide draw pool, the answer would be "No", but since this is just a practice pool, I'll say "yes". I suspected this would happen when I saw that there were only 17 picks at the time of the official deadline.

p.s. That means that I am also accepting mysterX's pick.

Thanks!! Totally do not expect it in a real SP.

I figured I'd cursed Kukuskin with this bending of the rules. Sure enough, he lost.

Another doomed pick. The only pick left is Chardy and he hasn't played yet. This may be the only suicide pool where there is no winner or every picker wins.
