The finals “race to ten” is basically a three way first to ten wins. The first two players play one game. The winner stays and plays the third player. They play one game. Winner stays and plays then faces the other player. Repeat until someone gets ten wins.
We thought about doing a regular round robin but this format seems more exciting. But we’ll see how it turns out, especially in an online format.
I also considered having four finalists but this tournament is already going to go for four weeks and I don’t really want it going any longer than that.
I’m not available to run any daytime tournaments but that could be something to add for the next one and maybe someone can help with running that one. However, if players aren’t going to be available to play in the finals, it seems kind of pointless to run a daytime tournament for this particular series.
