Arrow Tennis Poker World Championships!

The 2002 Tennis Poker World Championships!

The Tennis Poker World Championships will take place next December and only the top 16 at the end of the 2002 season will be able to enter the competition and try to win a medal.

As we’ll be during the off-season, the values of the tennis players will be given by their average performances throughout the 2002 Tennis Poker 8 legs; you may remember last year’s Christmas Special Exhibition, won by Tim Wilson.

So, the race has begun! Let’s see who will be the lucky 16 posters to qualify!

I am the defending champion, right? I remember I finally grab the top spot after winning the last tournament last year.


Inspiration is for amateurs

Rightous,
I think you'll be happy to hear you're wrong.

AlexSydney,
you were #1 at the end of the 2001 regular season; this is the first edition of the World Championships, so there isn't any defending champion.

Polishprodigy,
good luck, I hope you'll sneak in, you've climbed the ranking so quickly in the latest legs that it's not impossible at all.

Arn,
it's very likely, I hope all the leg winners will be able to qualify.

Doris,
your 7th leg result is very good, so you may be in.

Thank you all, good luck!

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Wow right now I'm in. Who would have thought I'll make such a jump. And I'm pretty confident that I won't drop to far in the last leg. But one never knows.

Hi Doris!
I haven't done anything for the 8th leg yet, but two aces are guaranteed with Kim and Patty, so it will be another very good result for you indeed.
