The free Poker Room (TFPR) has some team based poker tournaments that run for approx six months(average length of a season). The (TFPR) League and The World Cup, have now finished their 4th and 3rd season respectively. The league teams are 12 player strong (max) and you could compare it to club football in its composition. The World Cup teams have some nationality or residence requirements (see WC Rules below for details).
Each game has 5 players from both teams seated and points are given depending on the order of elimination from the game. Team tactics play major part in the way the matches are played, but Lady Luck and the poker Gods are known to meddle. Team play requires a different way of thinking about poker; your team members are as important as your chip stack.
The 2012-2013 season is now underway! Matches will be played from 1st October 2012.
RESULTS The results for matches in the current season are available as each match is posted by the teams. Look under the Results/Stats -> TFPR League menu entry, then select the statistics you want to view.
