    Re: Ask Questions about the Suicide Pool Here

    Uh-oh, I'm going winter camping this weekend and will be offline until Sunday night. IIRC the first match will start at 7pm EST Sunday night, right? I'm going to have to leave my potential picks with someboday... Does the AO play an entire half draw on Day 1 and the other half on Day 2? Men's and women's?
    I put in the work and wanted it so badly but this guy is the best for a reason. He is such a complete player ... maybe I'll just punch him or something, I don't know. - Andy Roddick

    I believe so, but I defer the definitive answer to someone else.

    Half day 1, half day 2. I'm not sure which half goes first, though.

    The AO website says Hewitt, Djokovic, Li, and Sharapova, will play on Monday. That means Day 1 is Men's top half and Women's bottom half.

    Thank you, Tog! Very helpful.

    Hey, just a quick question. I've been playing this for a couple of years and always like the challenge. The farthest I've gotten was to day 8, I think. Anyway, my question is, does someone here in the forum always make it to the end? Are there always/sometimes multiple winners? I always forget to check after I lose, though this time I won't
    Thanks for running this. It's a lot of fun. !

    Some people have great streaks and make it far for a few SPs in a row, but it is not common at all.

    There are also multiple winners sometimes.

    But, often the pool is decided before the final match. We call it Beating The Draw if a player (or more than one) can make correct picks (and not run out of players to pick) all the way through the tournament on either ATP or WTA side.

    I think it was Herodotus who won 3 or 4 in a row few years ago. That's not counting very early ones mostly among original members of the board.

    Herodotus was the first player to win three in a row (AO, French, Wimbledon - 2005), and threaten to win a Suicide Slam, but missed winning the US. And if I recall correctly, s/he is still the US short of a career Suicide Slam.

    CSGnyc was our first, and remains our only, calendar Suicide Slam winner, back in 2011.

    His/her name is not so memorable, so I had forgotten about that. Was it gender specific?

    It was all on the men's side, but I was incorrect - s/he won the '11 French, Wimbledon and US, and the '12 AO. So it was actually a Serena Suicide Slam.
