It's time to discuss the adjustments for the 2015 Tennis Poker season.
First of all, please take a look at the poll about the possible change of the joker rule:
Here's a short introduction to the 2015 events.
12 players, 13 from the 3rd leg, no qualies, bye for the top 4, from the 3rd leg top 3.
6 pairs, no qualies, first round bye for the top 2. As usual, new pairs will receive one half of the points earned by each player with last year’s partner.
In the first 6 legs, you will play once with all the other 11 players. The 7th leg semifinals will be played by the 2 pairs with the best scores and the 4 posters with the best win-loss ratio.
6 teams, World Group II cancelled. The event structure will remain the same, but the Round Robin will decide only the 2 teams directly through to the semifinals.
11 singles players, 4 pairs and 6 national teams coming back from the 2014 season: they are all in.
There will be a Round Robin stage, possibly 3 groups of 4, to decide the main draw entry list.
Top 4 will qualify for the YEC. Following the WTA tour rules, no more tournament of chmapions: players ranked #5-#8, that is the highest-ranked players not competing in the YEC, will qualify for the Zhuhai event.
I'm ready to hear your suggestions.
