Team tournament in october

Postby The italian job » Sun Aug 06, 2017 9:08 am

I will be running a team tournament sometime in October.

Discussed this on whatsapp and looks viable, since we will have 3 men teams.

I looked into pairing systems, and the best one is the follow:

Teams choose a player to present in secret. Then they disclose the player. Once such player is disclosed, both teams choose a opponent for the disclosed player in the opposite team in secret from the 2 remaining players.
Opponents are then disclosed. At this point, both teams have just a member left and they play each other.

It looks simple enough with no evident advantages to a team or the other, since players and opponents are disclosed at the same time.

Point size will be 75 points and normal steamroller rules.

Since I expect around 4 teams, we will probably play a round robin tournament (every team play vs every other team).

Since I'm looking at playing, disputes resolutions need to be sorted out by players in a amicable way (or we can organize a little wrestling ring where the last man standing is right).

Feedback and early commitment appreciated as always.

Should we still try this? Last event didn't go so well.

I will say let's slide it in November then, if ITF is not running wmh. If it is, we need to look at next year.

I doubt we can crank the numbers in right now if we do not try to bring in other players.
