    As a reminder, you can sign up for the Random partner tournament here: http://www.bpong.com/event/1539

    Just want to get everyones opinion on the structure. We’ll be capping it at 128 players. My initial thought was to pair everyone up into 64 teams, then have 2 32-team double-elim brackets.

    However, I thought it might be fun to make it double-partner and Single-elim. So, each player would have two random partners. There would thus be 128 teams and we would run a Single-elim bracket. So each player still have up to 2 losses.

    Thoughts?

    I like the idea skinny, getting to play with two randoms. What happens to this tourney if day 4"3 doesn’t end by 8?

    My biggest concern is if its 25 bucks a person, shouldn’t the prize be higher then 1k, or will it go up with more entries?

    The problem here, which I suspect you are overlooking, is that beer is included, which we obviously have to pay for.

    Definitely like the idea of two partners. That way at least in the situation described above if one person flakes out, at least I still have the other.

    This might make it way too complicated, but is there any way of making sure nobody from the same state play with each other? I only ask because I’d hate to get randomly paired with another ABQ player, whom I can play with whenever I want lol.

    basically what he is saying is he wants to be partnered with me as his dream has always been to stand by me at the tables lol

    Lol, I don’t really care who I get in that tournament, the plan is to be well beyond hammered by that point.

    Definitely two partners.

    It gives you the opportunity to play with more people that you would never get the chance of playing with otherwise. Also, if you do somehow get paired with someone that you know (which could still be fun) you get another opportunity to possibly play with someone else that you don’t know.

    The only problem I see with having 2 random partner single elimination would be if both your teams have to play against each other the very first round. That is an automatic first round loss which really sucks in a single elimination bracket.
