Lightbulb 2010 Tennis Poker Champions League: congrats to all medal winners!

The 2010 Tennis Poker Champions League!


Welcome to the fourth edition of the Tennis Poker Champions League.

For the 2010 season this game will be back with only a few changes in order to decrease the overall workload, but the basic idea will remain the same, as I think we've found a nice and balanced format.

I've gladly kept the original idea of a combined event where all the singles, doubles, Doppio Giallo, Fed Cup rubber and World Championships match wins will be counted to find the overall greatest Tennis Poker player!

Re: 2010 Tennis Poker Champions league: rules and 1st leg draw!

Basic rules

2 posters will face each other in a soccer match and the standings will be updated everyday at the end of the usual daily Tennis Poker schedule.

Each singles win (regular singles tour, Fed Cup singles rubbers and Worlds singles) counts 0.4 points, while each doubles win (regular doubles tour, Doppio Giallo, Fed Cup doubles rubbers and Worlds doubles) will be worth 0.2 points for each doubles partner. Qualies matches give only one half of the main draw points: 0.2 in singles and 0.1 in doubles. Scores are rounded, so in order to get the first goal you need at least 0.5 points.

Last year's main issue was the high number of matches required by the preliminary Round Robin groups. In this season we won't have more than 8 matches per leg: I've decided to start with 3 qualies rounds with knock-out matches.

A total of 16 posters will qualify to play the Round Robin phase, which will start in the 4th leg and will include 4 groups of 4 posters: with 1 match per leg, you’ll get to play everyone by the 6th leg.

In Round Robin groups, each soccer match win is worth 3 points, each draw 1 point. Considering the group final standings, in case of a tie between 2 posters, the direct encounter winner gets through. In case of a tie among more than 2 posters, the following elements will be considered in this order: number of goals scored, singles combination in the last leg. (Note for the 2009 players: the "penalty factor" thingie has been cancelled).

The 4 group winners will qualify for the 7th leg semifinals, where there will be knock-out matches again to decide the ultimate Champions League winner.

Re: 2010 Tennis Poker Champions league: rules and 1st leg draw!

Entry list

Originally intended as a game reserved to the previous year’s winners, all the posters will have a chance to win this title, including the newcomers!

But in this season the different divisions system has been abandoned: last year's achievements will be counted with bye assignments in the qualies, and posters with better 2009 records will start playing in a more advanced stage of the competition.

Here's the list of the 2009 regular tour (singles and doubles) and yearly contest medal (Fed Cup, Worlds, Doppio Giallo and Champions League) active winners:

Singles: Tetetubby, James, Adner, Klok, Princess Fiona
Doubles: Geewhiz & Kuilli, James, Meteor Shower, Kart, Gallofa & Rik.
Fed Cup: Ceze, -Ph51-, Meteor Shower, Rightous, The Crow, Per4ever, Arn
Worlds: James, The Crow, Geewhiz & Kuilli, -Ph51-
Doppio Giallo: Kuilli & The Crow, Arn & Gallofa
Champions League: The Crow, Meteor Shower

So, the 17 winners, listed by number of titles, are:

1: Adner, Ceze, Kart, Klok, Per4ever, Princess Fiona, Rightous, Rik., Tetetubby (9)
2: Arn, Gallofa, Geewhiz, -Ph51- (4)
3: James, Kuilli, Meteor Shower (3)
4: The Crow (1)

The 8 multiple winners Arn, Gallofa, Geewhiz, -Ph51, James, Kuilli, Meteor Shower and The Crow will skip the qualies and start right away in the 4th leg with the Round Robin groups.

The other 8 Round Robin spots will be assigned through 3 qualies round, but the other 26 posters will start at a different stage according to their 2009 season record.

Adner, Ceze, Kart, Klok, Per4ever, Princess Fiona, Rightous, Rik. and Tetetubby are the 9 posters with one 2009 title or medal: they will be directly qualified for the 3rd leg and will start playing only in the qualies final round.

The 11 posters coming back from the 2009 season without a title or medal are Muzzy, KC, Rocketta, GracefulVenus, Canuck, Valda Lake, CanIGetaWhat, Drake1980, Brian Stewart, ViennaCalling and DementievaDude: they get a qualies first round bye and advance directly to the 2nd leg.

The 6 newcomers ^bibi^, Yasmine, Dorien., Geoepee, Synu and Zamboni will start right away in the first leg.

The draw will be made round after round considering the updated singles ranking after each leg.

Check the following post for a detailed schedule.

Re: 2010 Tennis Poker Champions league: rules and 1st leg draw!

Match examples

Poster A wins 1 singles and 1 doubles and scores 0.4 + 0.2 = 0.6
0.6 is rounded up to 1

Poster B wins 3 singles matches and score 3 x 0.4 = 1.2
1.2 is rounded down to 1.

Poster C wins 2 singles and 2 doubles, scoring 2 x 0.4 + 2 x 0.2 = 1.2
1.2 is rounded down to 1.

Poster A vs Poster B ends up with a 1-1 draw.
If this is a Round Robin match, this draw is worth 1 point for both in the group standings.
If this is a knock-out match, Poster B advances thanks to the better score before roundings (win after extra-time).

Poster B vs Poster C ends up with a 1-1 draw.
If this is a Round Robin match, this draw is worth 1 point for both in the group standings.
If this is a knock-out match, as also the scores before roundings are the same, the Poster who advances is the one with the best Tennis Poker combination in that leg (win after penalties).
