TeamPoker® is “The Patented Card Game Process” for the Tournament Poker Team Sports Model.
TeamPoker® CasinoWare has implemented the TEAM POKER® Patented Poker Team System ( For ANY POKER GAME) into the CasinoWare Poker Room Software to create the new poker tournament paradigm where bothINDIVIDUALS & TEAMS WIN.
ANY POKER GAME and ANY PRIZE POOL SPLIT between Individuals and Team is possible from 0 to 100% per tournament director needs. Teams could be Trophy Only; or 60% of the prize pool to Teams and 40% to Individuals as example.
TEAM POKER® CAN OVERLAY ANY TOURNAMENT POKER GAME .
INDIVIDUALS SCORE - PLACE the same way they always have by their INDIVIDUAL FINISH POSITION (IFP) in the Tournaments.
TEAM SCORING is established by the Total Team Points. Points are the Inverse of the INDIVIDUAL FINISH POSITIONS in the count. The Highest Team Score (total of teammates IFP Points) wins etc. with the tie breaker being team with highest IFP.
TEAM HADICAPPING: Tournament Directors have Scoring Option of allowing the TEAM SIZE to VARY in Same Tournament by using the TEAM POKER® HANDICAP. The TP HANDICAP is the Ratio of the TEAM SIZE ALLOWED / ACTUAL SIZE OF TEAM. The Handicap is multiplied by the TEAM POINT SCORE to even the playing field so smaller teams can compete against larger. Tournament Directors can establish the Maximum and Minimum Size team to be allowed to enter or mandate a-number, #, of teammates per team.
SEATING PROTOCOL : The TEAM POKER® NO-CONTACT SEATING PROTOCOL DOES NOT ALLOW TEAMMATES ON THE SAME TABLE WITH OPPONENTS. Teammates must play among themselves or heads up to support table consolidation. The possibility exists for one teammate to wait to enter final table if 2 teammates and 1 opponent remain. Note: The No-Contact Rule and variation of seating randomness is the only modification to PokerTDA.com rules.
OPTIONAL FULL-CONTACT SEATING: An optional way to play is to allow teammates on the same table. The Teammates are Known and Identified. We envision TP Full-Contact to potentially be applicable to PRO and CHARITY Poker Events.
TOURNAMENT RESULTS : The Video Monitor Screens and Tournament Management Software Display both INDIVIDUAL & TEAM FINISH RESULTS side by side for award & payouts.
MAY THE BEST PLAYERS & TEAMS WIN!
