    They don't have different rules as far as who gets DQ'd - that is run by the national computer. They can have different rules as far as how previously played matches are affected by the DQ.

    Is it possible to get a strike from Open tourney play?

    For instance, Let's say a self-rated 4.0 takes a set from a Benchmark 5.0, is that a strike? could it be? Would a win in this situation cause a strike? What if a 4.5 gets a set or win off of a 5.0 or 5.5?

    What if a self-rated 4.0 takes six games, not a set, but a 4 & 2 loss on a 5.5?

    It depends on the section. Some sections do not count tournament matches in their NTRP ratings, some do. If your section does, then I don't see why you couldn't get strikes from tournament play as a self-rate.

    There is a fairly large squad of NTRP police that do patrol every tournament and every league match and cast votes on who is to be DQ'd and bumped. The letters are then sent out within 24 hours after the Regional DQ Team convenes in late night emergency sessions.

    They assemble in an old horse trailer just outside of Suffern NY. They have a database that alerts them via SMS whenever you secure a victory outside of your NTRP rating. Its really quite sophisticated.

    :shock:

    Here's another question. If a self-rate gets a dynamic DQ in one section but plays on teams in 2 different sections (like, for example, just randomly selecting Middle States and Eastern), are his results overturned in both sections or just the one where he was DQ'd?

    Yes, obviously in the grand scheme of tennis, all this ntrp stuff is quite low on the "serious business" ladder, but, still is of interest to those who are getting bumped around and are new to this whole thing.

    Anyway, is there a way to see if you have 1 or 2 strikes? Or, do you just all of a sudden get notified that you've been bumped?

    Finally, if you are self-rated and beat another self-rated 0 & 0 or similar, then I imagine this will not result in a strike?

    No you cannot see how may strikes you have ... otherwise you could "scam the system"

    Self rated player results do not count in your dynamic rating. So if you are a self rate, playing a self rate neither of you will earn strikes.

    Additionally any win 6-0, 6-0 does not count in your dynamic rating ... I am not sure if you could get a strike if you beat an on level computer rated player 0-0.

    Forgot how much fun NTRP discussions were.

    So they moved a bunch of people up across the board last year? I sat out all year because of a bad foot injury, and I come back to 3.5 and it's like playing 3.0's used to be. Complete with people *****ing that I shouldn't be playing in 3.5 (my computer rating is from 12/31/2008).

    Losers with no self-esteem play down. Their little egos make it impossible to accept defeat at the hands of someone their level. Their development of self-confidence stopped around the 3rd grade.

    OK, so this guy in question has apparently been DQ'd in one section. The captain in that section got a message that he was DQ'd (or "promoted" in their words) but his results would NOT be overturned because all of the strikes were in the other section. His name now appears in TennisLink with (DQ) but no * in that section.

    The strange thing is that the section where all of the strikes were apparently accumulated has not notified the captain in that section of any "promotion" and his name does not appear with any (DQ) or * for the matches in that section. Do different sections possibly have different standards for strikes? Or is the one section just behind in their accounting?

    Not quite. Results against players with no dynamic rating do not count. If a self-rated player has played two calculable matches (i.e. ones in which a rating can be generated) then that player has a dynamic rating that will be used when opponents play against him, even though he is still self-rated.
