    Re: 2009 AO SkanCanTest: Open for Business

    And now...it is with GREAT JOY that I announce the PeterSkan 2009 Australian Open Slam Contest is NOW CLOSED!

    (And it is only with great joy because...the Open is FINALLY starting! I apologize to everyone who didn't get their team listed in time!)

    Good luck with your teams and remember that you can check on the status of your team at ANY time!

    I said nevermind. I can't add. My original team was 30 points, unless I still added wrong or broke a rule. Whatever. LOL.

    Yes - I wondered why you were changing. Then I responded before your edit. What a comedy of errors. But no problem - I will revert to your original.

    Right, missinandre ... it's a wrap. I think I've got everybody logged into the game. There's a total of 105 teams. That's a great response and a good sign that we are going to have another great contest year.

    In the days of the pre-automated contest, my work would really only be starting as I would have to database all the teams set everything up, and then log the match results. That process would usually take a few days. The automated system takes care of much of that. Logging the match results is very simple, so we will have ranking results as the match results are posted.

    There's absolutely no way I would still be able to run the contest the old way. Now it proises to be better than ever, and I have Ace2Ace certainly to thank for that for automating the game and missinandre for being such an enthusiastic promoter of it.

    So now, let's sit back and enjoy some tennis!!

    YHS,

    Thanks, missinandre. But don't forget, folks, once you check out the rankings and enoy your off-TAT visit, get your posting butts back here - whether it's for the arcade or the dumpster or the plethora of other great contests here!

    Peace to all!

    Oops, my math is shotty. As punishment, I'll sub out Del Potro for Odesnik, if you want.
    It's hard out here for a Zuz.

    lol No need for punishment! My rule of thumb in these instances is to substitute using the highest ranked player in the lowest team seeding position that will make the team eligible. In your case, that means subbing #9 Blake for #8 Del Potro as your 6th pick. Since play has started, why don't we just leave it at that.

    Go James, Go!

    Subbing James Blake is extreme capital punishment!
