Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Very interesting your summaries Arvis, as always. Thanks for the work. Mertens is out too. Only 5 live PTs.

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Everyone but poor Lexus had Cibbie in Budapest, but nobody had AVU, so not a lot happened here.  Only a mere 59 points separated first (Murree, HTS) from second-to-last (several people).  The top scorers managed 300, while Lexus finished with 62.

It was a completely different story in Dubai, though!  We have two winners, Arvis and Dtrain, both of them only 5 points shy of the 1000 mark!  They were, however, less than 100 over 3rd place TE.  Many had Champ Svitolina on their team, so there wasn't too much of a gap in the standings.  However, this tournament was a big gut-punch for the five who failed to take the Ukrainian winner.  Of those, Snolly did the best but still finished 4 points shy of 400.  Spotec did the worst with 158, rounding out an utterly nightmarish fantasy week for him.

While Tenny and BHP were among the lowest scoring Svitolina pickers, they still did enough to maintain the #1 and #2 spots, respectively.  HTS bumped Tono and Adunar down 1 spot each, taking the #3 position.
Spotec finds himself in last now, with even less points than Dtrain, who has only made 6 teams to spotec's 11.

Thanks Milo I will Sunscreen is packed 100%

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Make sure it's 60 SPF!

There are 24 hours in a day.  You gotta have 60 hour protection.  If the sun fails to go down, you'll be ready.

That coconut scented force field will block out the sun's rays.  And any other rays.  From another sun.  In another galaxy.

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Only 5 of us had Tsurenko in Acapulco, with TE coming out #1 with 450 points.  Tono managed less than 100, embarrassingly, but 6 others fell shy of 200.

While Tenedab maintains a tenuous 200+ point grip on the lead here, hard-charging HTS gains yet another ranking spot, now in #2 and threatening for the lead.
Spotec has seen his way out of the basement, back ahead of Dtrain, with Aiur falling into last place.

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

Not a lot to report here, as we all went with pretty obvious picks.  Some of the more interesting ones:
- Goerges (HTS, Tono, Arvis)
- Konta (Aiur, Tono, BHP)
- Venus (TE, Adunar, Tenedab)
- Strycova (Dwight, Snolly)
- Vesnina (Tenedab)

Other than those, it's all the 8 most popular picks in here.

The K's are Killers in IW.....I wanted to pick Pliskova but I have already taken her three times so left her out, hopefully Simona can stop her going deep.

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

I wavered, then went for the wrong sister!

Re: THE PADME CUP! (Padme League 2018)

A nutty IW resulted in low scores, with TE, Adunar, and Tenny barely breaking 1000 and getting the win.  That's 380 points over last place, which is decent, but a very low margin for a 900/1000 tourney.  That's what happens when literally nobody takes the Winner or Runner-Up.

Tenny went in with the Overall lead, so he maintains his positions, as do #2 HTS and #3 BHP.  Aiur, unfortunately, didn't have the lowest IW score, but still didn't do enough to get out of the basement.
