DSG tourney format
Posted: Feb 18, 2002, 9:24 AM

I have an observation (gripe) about the format
for the DSG tournament... With the two brackets, it
is essentially a double elimination tournament, but,
the winner of bracket 1 can theoretically lose
despite only losing one match (if he wins bracket 1 but
then loses to the winner of bracket 2). It was
actually Kevin Sackett who brought this to my attention
when I described the tournament as double elimination.
Everyone else gets the chance to stay alive in bracket 2
after lsoing a match... sholdn't this also apply to the
winer of bracket 1? By this, I mean that the winner of
bracket 1 shoud play the winner of bracket 2, BUT, if the
winner of bracket 2 wins, this woudl simply send the
winner of bracket 1 to bracket 2 to join his opponent as
each having a loss, whereupon they woudl play one more
match, and now, whoever loses would be suffering the
second loss and would be eliminated, makin the other
player the winner of the tournament. It seems odd to me
to penalize the winner of bracket 1 by denying him
the right to stay alive after his first loss.... I
realize my method woudl potentially involve the two
players playing two matches in a row, but so what? it
still seems more logical and equitable. ANy thoughts on
this?

I apologize for the messy typing.. I
canlt typoe well and it is late and I am tired.


one final thought.. why are there so few femals pente
players?

Dm,
Someone told me that womens brains are not
as strategic.
Im not sure if thats
true?????
About tha tourney, we considered a true double
elemanation format but,
if I remember right, we thought
it would be more exciting to make the final match
the final match.
I guess we could change it if
enought players wanted to.
I am just hoping to someday
be in tha final match!
Oh, dm, set to get the
mail here and you can
keep up on all the pente
news as it hapens.
Joe

I sarted out playing Pente in 1985. I never even
heard of Pro Pente til a year ago so Pente will always
be my favorite. I play both in the tourny,s
so I
learn Pro Pente plus thats all everyone on Dweebos
plays. As for Woman they just don't have that long of an
attention span. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
just kidding. Maybe in
the future we could have Pente & Pro Pente in the
Texas Tourny don't know.
It isn't to late to sign up
for the Texas Tourny for anyone interested
