Tournamant rules: Byes

Postby KingLeonard » Fri Dec 15, 2017 10:13 pm

Colleagues. According to the tournament rules (10-3.d); "Players receiving a bye are awarded four Match Points and zero Game Points."

Has anyone else had problems where those 4 match points have pushed people into the finals? It seems every event where we have a bye, the people with the 4 match points are far more likely to sneak in.

Has anyone tried alternative tournament points models, such as 3 or 2 match points? Perhaps converting every 10 game points to 1 match point? Because I'm getting frustrated with this being an issue every tournament.

Can we take a step back and explain how byes come up? I don't seem to have a copy of the tournament rules kicking around - and I don't see them on the website (unless they are named something else)
