Now, a quick introduction to the 2008 events! :banana:


SIGN UP!

SINGLES
Your hand of five players will be ranked according to poker rules and you will face the other Tennis Poker players in a draw where the best combination always wins!
Sign up process for this event: just pick your five tennis players!

DOUBLES
The performance of each pair will be measured by the geometric mean of the ranking points earned by the two posters in the Tennis Poker singles tournaments: doubles pairs will face each other in a draw to find the best comprehensive score!
Sign up process for this event: just pick your doubles partner!

FED CUP
Two national teams, with at least 2 posters and no more than 6, will face each other in 4 singles and 1 doubles: the team with at least 3 wins out of these 5 rubbers will be the winner. Playing Fed Cup will make you eligible for the Olympic Games too: once you’ve picked your nationality, you’ll be included in the qualies.
Sign up process for this event: just pick your national team!

OLYMPIC GAMES
Singles, doubles and team event: the entry lists are now complete.
This event does NOT require any sign up.

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
Only the best Tennis Poker players of the 2007 season are eligible to compete in this event, which includes a singles and a doubles draw: one round per leg, with the medals awarded in the final leg of the season.
This event does NOT require any sign up.

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
The Tennis Poker combined event! All the singles players will be divided into different divisions according to their previous results and there will be play-off matches to decide promotions, relegations and eliminations.
This event does NOT require any sign up.

So, in brief, what must I do to sign up?


FIRST STEP: SINGLES
:) pick your five tennis players
:) check if that combination has already been chosen

SECOND STEP: DOUBLES
:) find a partner
:) be sure you both have signed up correctly for the singles

THIRD STEP: FED CUP
:) choose the country you’re going to represent
:) post the list of the members of your team (at least 2 posters, no more than 6)
:) be sure you all have signed up correctly for the singles
:) choose the font color which will be used for your team (optional)


Once you’ve done these 3 simple actions, you’re in for ALL the Tennis Poker events for ALL the 2008 season: there’s nothing else you need to do, just sit down and enjoy all the Tennis Poker fun! :D
