It's about time to start the new Tennis Poker season.
The 2013 Sofia ToC will be played with a brand new format by all the posters and the results will be posted together with the 1st leg scores.
A few changes will be introduced in this season, let's see the details for each event.
Nothing new, except the qualies rounds will be only two instead of three for the reduced number of players: 19 in the first leg, 20 with Jankimfan starting playing in the second.
Same for doubles: two qualies round instead of three: 9 pairs in the first leg, 10 from the second with Punky & Jankimfan.
DOPPIO GIALLO & CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
These two events will swap the preliminary formats somehow, with Champions League having knock-out matches qualies and Doppio Giallo including a Round Robin. These changes will let more people enjoy the game longer as there won't be any elimination till the 4th-5th leg, around the mid-season. And this solution will also let jankimfan play both events despite the lack of a first leg team. More details will be posted in the respective official threads very soon.
Nothing changes, except a couple of team adjustments: Geriatrica and North America will merge, while Punky and Jankimfan will be playing under the Newbies flag. As they were all World Group II teams, there won't be any change in the draws. Newbies will have the first leg off to let Jankimfan play both ties.
Thank you, good luck!
