Not sure about that, I haven't a detailed list for the early seasons. Three spots below you, there's Dahveed at #47, I think he was #1 at some stage. A few legs ago AlexSydney played the qualies and then he found his way back to the top 20. :) You never know. ;)

Hi guys! :wavey:

I'll take a look at last year's result, if I remember correctly Josh and Polishprodigy were ranked very low during the mid-season, but they had impressive results in the last legs and they eventually qualified. :)

Be positive, you never know. ;)

Thank you, good luck! :bounce:

Yeah, kicking me out of the last 16 :mad:

You were trying to give us hope right, Doc? :p

Well, let me try a second attempt, maybe I'll be more successful. ;)

Josh, Jacs and Polishprodigy were still outside of the top 16 before the very last leg in the 2002 season (respectively #19, #18 and #24), but they eventually qualified kicking The Crow out.

But it's even more interesting to see the situation after the 2002 4th leg, exactly one year ago. :cool:

9 posters out of the top 10 and 11 out of the top 16 at that stage eventually qualified at the end of the season. :) And it's not a real surprise that Tia Clara at #18, Rocketta at #20 and Brian #21 were able to gain a few spots to reach the World Championships. :)

Now, it comes the hopeful part. ;)

After last year's 4th leg:

Josh was 35th with 698 points. :eek:

Polishprodigy was 46th with 372 points :eek:

Just notice that 59 out of 65 contestants are over 372 points at the moment. So, anything can happen, it's not too late to gain enough points in the second half of the season. :D

As for the doubles, a pair has just climbed up to #1 from #13, I don't need to add anything else. ;)

Thank you, good luck! :bounce:

Being at #1, it couldn't get any better in the doubles. ;)

In the singles, the 16th player has always been around 2000 points, so I'm pretty sure you both will make it. :)

Thank you, good luck! :bounce:

There is something i don`t understand... How much does it worth the last leg? because i see Rocketta is more than 1100 points behind me in the RACE after the sevent leg and she (or he :p) is still number one in the rankings. I guess there is something at the end of the year that makes your ranking be up for the whole year (sorry Rocketta :))... that can explain how worth this 1200 points (from the last leg??) are.

DoctorG
Oct 25th, 2003, 06:38 PM
A very good combination can make you score many points. Last year Rocketta earned 1245 points thanks to a four of a kind: 300 round points for her tournament victory + 945 for her performance, that was (13+13+13+13+11)*15 = 945. In the same leg Josh was over 1000 thanks to a full house.

It's not something related to the last leg of the season, it has happened a few times earlier this year too:

1st leg:
1180 - Dawn Maree
1030 - Tine
1030 - Moon

3rd leg:
1080 - CanIGetaWhat

4th leg:
1360 - Brian Stewart
1150 - Griffin

5th leg:
1610 - ManuelanMaggieLover
1325 - Valda Lake

I don't think it's a fair to say Rocketta stayed at the top just thanks to a single good result, she was a great example of consistency throughout the season (W, QF, 2, QF, RU, 3, 2, QF). And, as a personal note, she always supports this game, even when she loses.

True True!! Rocketta is always very supportive of Tennis Poker...she can be found in most all of the threads Doc posts here.

I was thinking of retiring from Tennis Poker this year...but now I think I may stay on another season considering my position in ALL the tours here. (#1 in Fed Cup, #2 in Dubs, #4 in Race etc..)

Ok a couple of things here

1.- I did not know that fact, i still feel like a newbie on this game :) and i can say that my season has not been that well then :confused: , pretty much since one leg could give you more than 1000 points, nothing is decided yet :eek: ... but hopefully i can end at number one.

2.- Well i did not pretend to be unfair or nasty with my comment, but the fact is that Rocketta last year`s event points added to this year`s performance make 3340, so those 1245 points worh more than 30% of her total ranking points, now i understand her worry :o, but in a way what i said is true, but this is how the game works and its good to understand the system.

Thanks DoctorG for the explanation.

You're doing very well after just two legs, newbies always struggle with the ranking at the beginning, but that's what wild cards are for. ;)

Though you didn't reach those heights, you are the only multiple winner and you would really deserve to be #1 at the end of the season. You would do what AlexSydney did two years ago, becoming #1 at the end of his very first Tennis Poker year. As far as my experience go, I don't expect the last leg to give huge points, as many players are injured and the fields are not great. Time will tell. :)

2.- Well i did not pretend to be unfair or nasty with my comment, but the fact is that Rocketta last year`s event points added to this year`s performance make 3340, so those 1245 points worh more than 30% of her total ranking points, now i understand her worry :o, but in a way what i said is true, but this is how the game works and its good to understand the system.

If you think that, using a ranking based on 8 scores, each leg should count for 12.5%, it's not weird that an extraordinary result goes up to about 30%. And ONE extraordinary result is not enough for #1: the ladies who dominated this year's first leg (Dawn, Moon and Tine) have never been in real contention for the top. Last year Janice Kersey won a leg, but she even struggled to enter the top 30.

Thanks DoctorG for the explanation.
(Geez sorry to be a pest i have been asking things time after time this year :angel: )

I'm actually very happy to see someone interested in the game, I'll be glad to answer all your question if you have any doubt. :)

Good luck for your #1 quest! :yeah:
