Hello,
I am looking for a format, or where i can get a format, to run a Triple Elimination Tournament.
It can be either a Bracket Run Event, or a Continuous Draw.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Most people in a tournament like to get done before 6 am the next morning.

How many does the draw have to be for?

Sometimes I don't understand that, if someone says a word I don't know I will look it up on www.m-w.com or something. Some people don't know how to look things up so that is why I posted the magic formula I used, others are just plain lazy.

Most of the time I am lazy, but not when it comes to vocabulary or information on something.

It does look complicated and that is only a draw for 8!!! Imagine a field of 32, 64 or more!!! You would be there for weeks!

I guess if the one loss bracket if known as thew "B" side, the two loss bracket must be called the "C" side.

Personally, I prefer the seaside to the "C" side.

I don't think I'd use the Triple-Elimination format for a 16 player field or larger, but it can be an effective way to reduce groups of 8 down to 2 or 3 which gives a good chance for the best 2 or 3 from each group to get through, without the length of a Round Robin format, which can do the same but requires more matches, and hence shorter races.

I would suggest the winner of group C has to beat the winner of group B twice, and then the winner of that match would have to beat the winner of group A twice. That is if you want to determine an actual 1st, 2nd and 3rd, rather than just 2 or 3 to qualify for the next round.

Thanks for the help, all that submitted.
I am looking to run a 32 team Triple Elimination Tournament...and i did seearch out on Google; however, none of the formats showed a bracket, or a free draw format.
The purpose of the 3 elim. draws in the lesser teams to play as opposed to a 2 elim. format.
