Sound good to me. Look forward to playing. Glad there is an option for a WD or missed cut other than just the highest score of the player in that cluster.

2013 Contest rules

2) The format of each weekly Tournament is as follows:

a. Players will be grouped into 3 groups. Group A, Group B and Group C.

c. Contestants will make 2 starting selections from group A, 2 starting selections from group B and 2 Starting from group C. Contestants will also make an alternate selection in each group. So in total the contestant will make 3 selections in each group. When the alternate choice appears ambiguous then the last type choice in each group will be considered the alternate choice.

d. Each contestant will then receive a score from the two players from each group that they have chosen for each round, with the following exceptions:

1: If a player wd before the start of a tournament the alternate will be
used in her place.
2: If one of the 2 main players selected does not make the cut (if there
is a cut) the alternate player's score will be used for the rounds
after the cut and the original players score will be used for the
rounds before the cut.
3: If a player wd during the tournament that player's completed rounds
will count. The alternate player will be used for the remaining rounds.
4: In the event thru wd or missing the cut that there are less then the
required 2 players are remaining in the tournament for a group, the
contestant will be assigned the high score for that round for that
group.


f. There is an optional Tournament Winner Bonus selection that can be made by the contestant. Bonus as below.

Winner bonus points will not be split.
Winner bonus points will start at -5.
Bonus points for placing 2nd -4.
Bonus points for placing 3rd -3.
Bonus points for placing 4th -2.
Bonus points for placing 5th -1.
Bonus points will then multiplied by a current Rolex Ranking multiplier.
Ranking 1-5 x 1
Ranking 6-10 x 1.5
Ranking 11-20 x2
Ranking 21-40 x2.5
Ranking 41+ x 3

Missing the cut is +10
Great moves xman5. The contests will be more competitive and will not be decided until the very end. Hope the changes bring in more contestants, as the participation will be more exciting.
I permitted myself to make some changes on the bonus section rules. They are in RED. It is up to you to integrate them to the official rules.
Two additional comments related to the Bonus Section:
1) In case of a tie; lets say that three players are tied for second place. Will the three players get the second place bonus and there will not be bonus for third and fourth place or you will average the bonus points for 2nd-to 4th? Obviously, the former sounds logical, but it is not clear.
2) Missing the cut. When does the +10 penalty takes effect? a) I select player A and she is not even in the event as it happened once last year? b) Player A is in the event, but gets a DNS, WD, DQ in the first round or c) second round? d) Misses the cut?

Last: When you go away for the weekend, please advice and I may be able to take over scoring. Obviously I will insist on a share of your gambling wins

EDIT: When you mention the use of the alternate you always use WD. What happens when the player is a DNS or DQ? Not the same if your selction WD because of injury than she was DQ for illegal reasons. Just trying to be difficult xman5. LOL

1) We are very generous with the points distribution. If 3 contestants tie for second all will get 2nd place points (2 points each). The next lower score or scores will get 3rd place points (1 each).

ex.

Contestant A Score 1000 Place 1st - Points (3)

Contestant B Score 1002 Place 2dn - Points (2)
Contestant C Score 1002 Place 2dn - Points (2)
Contestant D Score 1002 Place 2nd - Points (2)

Contestant E Score 1001 Place 3rd - Points (1)


2) One of the main reasons for the alternate is for the WD situation. It removes a situation that many felt unfair. Generally this was due to injury.
So this will apply if the player WD or DNS before the tournament. If they WD or DNS a round during the tournament the alternate will be used going forward, but the prior round scores will count. The idea is to make sure that as many real rounds count in your score.

However DQ will not apply to this case. A DQ is a result of the actual play and not injury. A DQ will fall under the max points rule. A DQ is about the worst thing that a player can do.

If you select a person that is not in the event for the bonus you will get the +10 penalty. That is that fault of the contestant. A DNS, WD will not count against the Bonus. You will not get penalized for a player injury. A DQ to your bonus selection will get the +10 if the DQ comes before the cut. Again this situation is a result of player action.


PS. This is getting more complicated then the NFL.
