I think itís time for a little rule change. First of all I would like to point out it has nothing to do with the 3rd leg starting next Monday, or any particular ongoing fact. It could
be related to something who might
happen in a future which is not near, and I think itís a good idea to state things now, way ahead, in order to avoid any kind of controversy.
So far, if 2 or more posters score the very same combination, the tie has been broken considering the tennis players who are not in common and the other values scored during the same leg.
This rule will stay as it is, but I need to sort out what happens if the tie is not broken yet by this comparison. It has never happened in more than a decade, but I do think we could be near the end of the Tennis Poker world as we know it.
Improved tie-breaker rule
If 2 posters end up with the very same combination, I will consider, for the picks who are not in common:
1) other values scored in the same leg
2) number of sets won during the leg
3) number of games won during the leg
4) singles ranking (the poster with the worse ranked picks took more risks and is considered a better performer)
5) following leg combination
If more than one player is not in common, the combined result will be considered.
Let me know if you have any doubt.
