    Re: THE MAD DASH TO MIAMI: Ask Questions Here

    Maybe I'm an idiot, but I can't get my head around this... the intro to the "MDtM Lounge" thread says "12-woman team" but the way I'm reading the "players and prices" list only has me choosing 8... 2 each from categories A, B, C, D.

    What am I missing? lol

    What if there is no woman playing in a particular week from a particular category? Do we pick somebody from that category anyway and hope they play the following week?

    Re: THE MAD DASH TO MIAMI: Ask Questions Here

    Yes Kandi. Oftentimes there aren't too many choices for players who ACTUALLY play the tournaments, especially from the lowest category. You choose the ones you think are likely to appear, and hope that they do so! A couple of times I've chosen players from that group that have never shown up. Awesome...
    I'll miss you!

    I think I can answer this one for you, kandi! Who you pick for your team is your choice. As long as you have the right amount of players from each category, the rest of the "planning" is completely up to you. You are not required to build up a team of players who are guaranteed to play during a specific week. The big trick is, of course, to look ahead over all the tournaments, guess/gamble who you think will do well and when and take it from there. Oh, and know when to trade and who to give the boot, of course

    That was much better than my answer, Mr. Koffie.

    Next question: We are not required to spend our entire 150 credits, right? That is a MAXIMUM, not a minimum?

    You've got it; it's a maximum. Just remember that, if you plan to substitute in higher ranked players later on, you'll need to "save" enough credits in your original team so you can sub them in without going over the 150-credit limit.

    Re: THE MAD DASH TO MIAMI: Ask Questions Here

    How is this thing scored? I know we get points for how deep each player goes in a tournament, but is it simply 1 point per round of main draw? If it's complicated, don't bother explaining it. Just wondering if there's a way to track our own scores.

    That link has the table with the points for each round at each tournament in the contest.
