New Tournament Format Here's an concept I have been thinking about for sometime. It's actually a takeoff on a tournament format that was outlined in this forum some time ago. It has a couple of objectives... 1- To minimize the "luck factor" as much as possible 2- To provide the players with the most enjoyable experience by allowing all players to compete through the final round. A- It would always be a 2 day tournament. Depending on the number of players, and the number of table available, there would be a minimum of 4 rounds or a maximum of six rounds per day. B- All players would play in each round. Points would be accrued based on the following schedule: 1st place 10 points 2nd place 6 points 3rd - 6th place 4 to 1 point. C- Final round, final table the 6 players with the highest accumulated point totals. (in the event of a tie, the accumlated dollar value will be used) Final round, all other tables, all players play.. first place each table gets their entrance fee back. All of the TBJPA rules would apply, except there would be no rebuys,ever. Oe last part of this idea is the use of the DOVER (a contraction of do-over) chip. The chip would not be sold but would be issued to each player with the beginning chip total. All rules governing the use of the Hilton Mulligan chip would apply here. A simple computer program could be written to control all the necessary bookkeeping involved with this ,and to accomplish the seeding of players for the various rounds.
