    Day 1 (Mon) Men's Aus Open Suicide Pool Pick

    Welcome, veterans and rookies, to Day 1 of the Australian Open Men’s Suicide Pool – 2009 edition. Happy New Year, everyone!

    You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the men’s event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you can never use him again. There will be a “picks and results thread” posted once the day 1 threads are closed so you can check the choices you have already made.

    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 Monday.

    Post your Day 1 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in Melbourne, rain or shine. For day 1, that’s Monday, 11:00 AM in AUSTRALIA. For those in the US, that is Sunday 7:00 PM EST. Please do not be late, as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. 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."

    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.

    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 have chosen 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.

    Best of luck and thanks for joining us.

    Since I woke up and realized the order of play for Monday was set, day 1 is open for men's picks.

    Read the instructions carefully - even veterans of the game.

    Good luck!

    I just want to interject that I love the picks so far. 7 with no duplicates and every one has a real chance to end in tears. Awesome.
