Mosconi Cup Ranking System Announced

MATCHROOM SPORT can announce the qualification system for the 2011 PartyPoker.net Mosconi Cup which takes place in Las Vegas from 8 – 11 December. For the first time, Matchroom will be operating their own ranking lists, and this year, the majority of both sides will come from two separate ranking lists created specifically for the tournament.

Players and fans will now be able to follow the progress of all the leading contenders as they vie for spots as the tournaments unfold. The final event on both lists is the 2011 US Open which concludes on Saturday 22nd October. After that date both teams will be named in full.

The European Mosconi Cup Ranking will consist of 12 events – six Euro Tour events and six ‘World’ events. The ‘World’ events will carry approximately 50% more points due to the international strength of the field.

Only players finishing in the last 32 of each event will be allocated points and at the conclusion, after the 2011 US Open, the top three players will automatically gain entry to the Mosconi Cup side.

The remaining two players will be Matchroom Sport wildcard picks although the ranking will play a part in this.
