Tennis Poker 2004
1st leg: January 5th - February 8th
Gold Coast, Auckland, Sydney, Hobart, Canberra, Australian Open, Tokyo
Let's play the first leg of the 2004 season!
43 players is not an easy number to handle. I've decided to keep the draw of 64, even if there is a huge number of 1st round byes, so that the scores will be comparable to last year's ones.
So, as long as we have less than 48 players, we'll have:
24 seeds with a first round bye
8 more direct entries
4 wild cards
4 qualifiers out of the remaining 7
As we've always done in the past, wild cards will be assigned according to the previous leg results. As there are only 32 players from last year's final leg, there are only two wild cards in this leg and 6 qualifiers among the 9 newbies.
