The 2007 Tennis Poker Survivor!!!
This game will be similar to last year’s Winter Olympics but hopefully some changes will make it more enjoyable.
A brief reminder of the basic rules.
In all the other Tennis Poker events the player values are definitive at the end of each leg: the best result throughout about a month of tennis tournaments are taken in consideration to decide the final outcome. For this event, there will be a new ranking after each WTA tournament, according to the poker combinations you get from your team with that particular event values. For each WTA event, the last poster will be eliminated.
Ties will be broken considering the following event results; especially in smaller tournaments, a lot of posters will get no values at all, and at the beginning it will be more a matter of consistency.
Even if you happen to be the last poster in the standings, you still have chance to stay in the game thanks to immunities
and re-qualifying stages
: in any stage, no matter what your combination is, if you picked either the tournament winner
or the wooden spoon
, you will advance directly to the next stage.
For those of you who are not familiar with the wooden spoon concept, she’s the player who loses in the first round, to a player who loses in the next round, to a player… and so on, till the semifinalist who loses to the eventual runner-up.
: at the end of each leg, the posters with the best combinations will be safe for some stages. The number and length of these immunities might change; the first leg includes 8 events, and this time it will be the top 8 to get the immunity, with #1 safe for 8 stages, #2 for 7, #3 for 6… and so on, till #8.
If you’re last and not able to gain immunity in any way, you are eliminated, but you still have chance to come back in the re-qualifying stages
: each leg ranking will give immunities but will also re-instate some eliminated players; the number of lucky losers will increase as the game goes on, but in the first leg top 2 will be able to rejoin the game.
