    Day 2 (Tue) Men's US Open Suicide Pool Pick

    Hello and welcome to day 2 of the Fourth Annual United States Open Menís Suicide Pool Ė the 2008 edition!

    You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the Menís event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you can never use them again. There is a ďpicks and results threadĒ posted so you can check the choices you have already made.

    IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU FOLLOW THE POSTED SCHEDULE OF PLAY BELOW. THIS IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT FOR THE US OPEN MENíS EVENT, BECAUSE THE MENíS FIRST ROUND MATCHES ARE SPREAD OVER 3 DAYS. SO, EVEN IF SOME PLAYERS FROM A CERTAIN HALF OF THE DRAW ARE PLAYING ON TUESDAY, THAT DOESNíT MEAN ALL OF THE MATCH-UPS FROM THAT HALF OF THE DRAW ARE PLAYING TUESDAY. BE CAREFUL. WE LOST QUITE A FEW ON DAY 1 WHO CHOSE PLAYERS THAT WERE NOT SCHEDULED TO PLAY THAT DAY.

    Post your Day 2 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in by the start of play in New York, rain or shine, that is Tuesday, August 26, 2008 at 11:00 AM New York time (east coast), 8:00 AM on the west coast. For those in Europe, London is five (5) hours later than the east coast. Donít be late as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. This thread will be locked at 11:00 AM EDT, so please don't wait until the last minute or you may find it locked when you hit "post".

    If you change your mind after you make your pick, and before the deadline, please make a second post advising us of your change - PLEASE DO NOT make your change in your original post, as we often go through the posts before closing to begin the task of updating the picks and results, and we might miss a change if you edit your original pick.

    Best of luck, and thank you for joining us!

    Day 2 is open!

    Again, a mixture of matches from both halves of the draw. Make sure the player you choose is playing on Tuesday.

    And, not that it will matter, but there are two Minar's. So, be sure and specify which one, if you go that route.

    This is an ugly day for an SP, so I'll keep fingers crossed and take Fish.

    Well I really have to do well here... This was a definite tough choice. And although it may sound risky, I'm avoiding bandwagons and possible upsets:

    (Q) Rik De Voest RSA for me, please.
