This is a cool way of doing tournaments that a local pool hall does:

Get eight cards, 2 for each table. Get a few jokers too if there's more than 8 people. Every person should be able to draw 1 card.

So you'd have a pair of aces for table one, pair of twos for table 2, etc.

The two guys who draw aces play each other on table one, the two guys who draw twos play each other on table 2, etc.

Anyone who draws a joker gets a bye.

These players match up and the loser reports his loss. That's one 'strike'. Three strikes and you're out. After everyone has finished his game, you draw again and keep repeating this until only 2 people haven't been knocked out. Those 2 play each other until one of them gets 3 strikes and is done.

So it's totally random who plays who, and depending on your luck you could keep getting the same guy or keep getting the strongest player. But despite that small problem it's pretty fun. Everyone has a decent chance. The two strongest guys can keep drawing each other and knocking each other out, giving the weaker guys a decent hope of beating them in the final.

Fun format.
