Wink The 2009 Tennis Poker Doppio Giallo: congrats to Kuilli & The Crow!

"Doppio Giallo" is a popular format in tennis events for kids or tourists, as it helps people to meet and find new friends: it's simply a doubles event where pairs change partner round after round.

In each round partnerships will be decided according to the previous leg results, pairing up the first with the last, the second with the last but one, and so on... For the first leg, the 2008 final placements will be used, together with the Australian Open seeding contest for the newbies.

The first leg entry list and draw will be posted shortly after this. With 42 entrants, we’ll start with 21 pairs, and here’s the first big news: the 2008 winners get a first round bye! Congratulations to Kuilli and The Crow!

The second change will concern the lucky loser system: winning pairs will advance together with the best singles scorers like in the previous edition, but also the losing pairs will have a chance to go through directly with their combined score.

You can check last year’s edition here:

That actually made me feel guilty for a millisecond .

You know you're still in my top ten favourite posters of all time though in spite of the fact that I blame you for Henin sabotaging my 2008 season .

I tell you what I'll do - I've still got that nude Justine Henin topless calendar that I was going to mail you as an Xmas present.

I'll put it in the post as a gesture of goodwill to remind you how much Kart The Crow - I'm sure you'll love it: apparently it's a pop-up calendar as well ... though wrapped up, it looks pretty flat .
