Arrow The 2008 Tennis Poker World Championships: congratulations to all the medal winners!

The 2008 Tennis Poker World Championships!


This event is reserved to the best players of the 2007 season.

Singles top 20 and doubles top 8 in the 2007 YER get a Worlds main draw spot for sure.

A few wild cards have been assigned according to the usual criteria (2007 Worlds final standings, best 2007 result and best 2007 score), and one more will be available through the people's choice poll.

Withdrawals might change the entry lists a lot, but this is the first draft...

Re: The 2008 Tennis Poker World Championships: draft entry list!

Fieke won the poll and gets the singles last wild card.

All the top 20 signed up for 2008, though two wild cards need to be relocated.

The situation is a little bit more complicated in doubles with a lot of posters withdrawing or changing partner, the new entry list will be posted as soon as possible.

Good luck everyone!

Re: The 2008 Tennis Poker World Championships: draft entry list!

Important update for the doubles event.

Only 11 pairs playing in 2007 confirmed their presence and the poll for the 4th wild card became useless. With 12 available spots, everyone is in: top 8 by ranking + 3 wild cards.

The remaining spot will be assigned to new pairs through a qualifying round to be played in the 1st leg.

So, for the very first time, a pair will compete in the Worlds without having qualified with the previous year's results.
