Cool 2010 Tennis Poker Nations Cup: congrats to Geriatrica!

Tennis Poker 2010 Nations Cup!

Welcome to the first edition of the Tennis Poker Nations Cup!

I thought it was nice to have another team event with all the 10 nations facing each other, instead of being divided into 2 different World Groups. The format will be very simple and won't add much work, so I'm very happy to add more Tennis Poker fun.

The perfomance by each team will be simply represented by the average score: sum of scores by all the team members divided by the number of team mates.

Scores are the same used in Fed Cup, but with the particular format with rosters and rubbers, not necessarily a better score average means a better Fed Cup performance.

In each leg, teams will be ranked according to their average scores: the last 2 teams will face each other in the following leg and the loser will be eliminated. For the surviving nations, average scores will be added leg after leg and the team with more points at the end of the season will be the Nations Cup winner.

The results will be announced in the daily scores thread, team by team, starting from the safe central positions, up to the leg winner and down to the trouble zone.

This event will give points for the ranking by nations just like Fed Cup according to the final placements (8000 for the winner, 6000 for runner-up… with a 25% reduction after each season), but leg winners will also get a 100 pts bonus.

Good luck everyone!

Indeed, in the first leg it has happened in 2 ties out of 4: the team with the better average ended up losing the Fed Cup tie, including The You Knows, the Nations Cup 1st leg winners.

So unfair.

Good idea, Doc. I like having another team event.

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
Be kind.
Always.
