These 12 players will be playing our unique format. Beginning Thursday at 1pm (Session 1), the players will pair up and play each other 25 games. Not a race to 13, not a race to 25, they will just play 25 games, rotate break. Then, at 7 pm, they will re-convene and be paired up based on the Session 1 scores. The top 2 scorerers will play each other, 3rd will play 4th, and so on... Then, on Friday at 1 pm they will meet and do this again, and again at 7pm. They will do this Saturday as well. By the end of play Saturday night, all players will have played 150 games each. At this point, the bottom 8 players will be eliminated and the top 4 players will return Sunday to battle it out for the title... Sunday's play will be Single Elimination races to 13... Come down and watch!

allen_jr...Why not have the final four play round-robin for the $$$? That's a much better determination of who's the best player, than single-elimination semi-final and final matches, imo.

Agreed, but we announced it this way so it has to stay for now... next year that will probably happen....

Poll the players and if they all agree then the change could be made without any problems.

I was at the event and watched Fridays play. Great play by all.

Allen I have a question. I read your earlier post a few days ago and the one in this thread which explains how the matches are determined after each round. 1st plays 2nd, 3rd plays 4th, etc. At the event yesterday I asked what happens if the standings remain the same after several events. One person said the same people can't play each other twice. Can you confirm this? If so, does the player than play the next person in line?

Can you also post the individual results of each round in addition to the total standings. I did not see this information online here, at the action report website, or at the event itself

I think this would be good to know so we can see who has played each other and therefore we can follow along better.

Thanks for putting on the event.

Yes, if there is a conflict, the play order moves down the line to the next competitor that they have not played yet... I think you kind of asked 2 questions here though... If there is a tie score, then we use the Break and Runs as a tiebreaker. If the player is tied for both, then we will look and see if they have played each other earlier, if they have, then whoever won that individual match will be considered leader. If they have not played each other before, then they would have a short race match to establish a leader...
