Exclamation 2017 schedule: 3 leg adjustments

The length of 6 legs will change in the 2017 season.

The number of events will be almost the same in each leg: 8 in 5 legs, 7 in 2 and 6 in 1.

The first leg will end one week earlier: St.Petersburg and Taipei will move to the second leg. This will give me more time to set up the new season right away after the Australian Open. As teams are often chosen considering the first week events, the first leg scores have always been strong and they shouldn't suffer much from the reduced number of events.

The 3rd leg will end one week earlier as well, with Rabat and Prague moving to the 4th leg: the French Open leg had only 5 tournaments in the past few seasons, so I think it's time to add 2 more events to level things a little bit more.

The 6th leg, the only one without a mandatory event, will end a week later, featuring New Haven and the same week TBD International event. The 7th leg will start with the US Open, going back to a schedule already used in previous Tennis Poker seasons.

Details in the next post.
