    Olympics Contest: H2H: How it works

    Welcome all to the Head-to-Head portion of TAT's Olympics Contest.

    The Match Ups
    All contestants will be paired randomly. As long as possible we will avoid rematches between contestants.

    The contest staff will then choose at random one match from each event (singles and doubles) where each pair will have to predict winner and score via PM. In some cases we might include tiebreaker questions if we feel they could be necessary.
    All pairs will have to deal with the same matches across the board.

    In case of an odd number of participants we will choose a single player's predictions (again at random) to use as a bot. The odd one out will play against these "bot" predictions.

    Deciding the Winner
    Points will be awarded proportionally to the winner; which will be decided using the following criteria:
    1. Correct winner of the match
    2. Correct number of sets in the match
    3. Closest number of total games
    4. Tiebreak questions that will be posed

    So a prediction for a match will look something like this:
    Contestant A. Berdych d. Wawrinka 6-2/6-3.
    Contestant B. Berdych d. Wawrinka 7-5/4-6/6-2

    If Stan wins and one had predicted him to beat Tomas, that contestant wins.
    If Tomas wins (or Stan wins and no one had predicted him to do so) we go on to the number of sets. Should both participants predict the same number of sets we use total games and if the tie persists we use the TB questions which will be posed for each round.

    This will be the same mechanism for each of the matches that will have to be predicted each round; each match yielding points to the winner. So in the match up one could go 4-0 or split it even 2-2 getting points accordingly.

    Points will not vary from round to round. (2 points per match won)
    Meet again we do, old foe...

    Here's a great table from Dave that further explains how tiers one and two will work.


    If each contestant picks a different player to win, then the contestant picking the correct player wins. If both contestants pick the same player to win, then the contestant picking the correct number of sets wins: see the table below.
    Contestants' predictions Match Result Scoring
    Contestant 1 predicts Federer in two sets
    Contestant 2 predicts Federer in three sets
