We confidently continue to expand our team. For the second month in a row, we are signing two athletes, one in each of our main areas of work — tennis and poker. Read about what else happened in the middle of autumn in our traditional monthly review.
- 4 new applications
- 2 new polls
- 2 contracts are signed
- Roland Garros in the Predictions contest
In October, we received applications from four players:
- Credit Chayiarin (Thailand)
- Daniil Ostapenkov (Belarus)
- Marina Pashkova (Russia)
- Arman Dzhavadov (Russia)
We are glad that more and more athletes learn about us from their friends. This helps us find players who do not participate much in tournaments due to the fact that they do not have the financial resources for this, but a lot of desire to develop and achieve results.
In addition, two voting procedures were conducted. Both players received support from ACE holders. Ibrokhimjon Urinov got 77.2% of the votes and Margarita Andreyuk received 70.7% support from the community. Both players got the positive feedback from our tennis experts.
A new contract with tennis junior is signed
After the end of voting, in a short time, we managed to conclude a contract with Margarita Andreyuk. Margarita shows excellent results in tournaments, and our experts also appreciated her playing technique.
Margarita won two J5 titles in Telavi in 2019 and also J5 title in Antalya in 2020. Right now her overall win rate is 86%.
“I took on playing tennis rather late, in 2014, when I was 11. Before that, I was seriously keen on show jumping. It was the time of my summer vacation when a friend of mine invited me to his tennis practice, so I went, just for the company. There I got truly magnetized with it and realized that tennis was something I came to love more than anything else. I decided to practice tennis professionally. I used to spend 6 hours a day on the court, practicing both individually and in teams. Six months later I won my first national tournament. Since 2016, I got involved in TE tournaments.
In 2017, I won TE under 14 tournaments in Georgia and became the absolute champion of TE Under 14 tournaments in Armenia. In 2018, I was a finalist of TE Under 16 tournaments in Georgia and Greece, as well as the champion of TE Under 16 tournaments in Azerbaijan. In 2019, I became champion of 2 ITF JUNIOR series tournaments in Georgia. In 2020 I have won the first prize at the ITF JUNIOR tournament in Turkey. This year, I look forward to taking my share in WTA tournaments.”
In October, we signed poker player Vladislavs Perovs. He is from Latvia. Vladislavs has five years of poker experience.
His profit for the entire time is $ 17,000. The biggest win was $ 4,700. We have already defined limits for him, which will vary from $ 2 to $ 22. His average ROI is 14.2%.
Our poker expert Tobias Schaaf also found the player to be promising. We plan that Vladislav will improve his performance thanks to training sessions with the Tokenstars team.
Overall, October turned out to be very productive for the poker direction in TokenStars. Our players took part in 1,241 tournaments. The biggest win was 1,024 euros. Our young player Lucas Fruhbauer took part in the tournament. The event lasted 8 hours. Lucas suffered an offensive defeat with pocket kings, and his opponent went all-in with pocket tens and was able to win with a full house.
Roland Garros in the Predictions contest
Considering that ACE was our first token, we pay a lot of attention to tennis, as well as our community. Therefore, in our October contest we followed the brick-red courts of Roland Garros, or the French Open.
The most accurate 101 predictors shared 3000 TEAM tokens in the prize pool.
Rafael Nadal took the 20th Grand Slam title, equaling record holder Roger Federer in this indicator. 19-year-old Iga Swiatek, who beat Sofia Kenin with a score of 6:4, 6:1, won the first Grand Slam tournament and the first title in her career.
Signed TokenStars player Veronika Kudermetova also took part. She could reach the third round in doubles, where Veronika and Zhang Shuai lost to the duo Sofia Kenin / Bethanie Mattek-Sands — 6:2, 3:6, 6:4. The meeting lasted 1 hour and 50 minutes.
