3 points for a draw and 4 for a win? I'm not sure how much of an incentive that would make to go for a win. Perhaps it would be better to have 5 points for the win.
But rather than a new tournament, I would like to see an RHP league. Or perhapse 3 leagues. With promotion and relegation between them.
Perhaps it's just because it's early days in each to ...[text shortened]... dise the speed of tournament play.
So yep. An RHP league set up might be interesting.
I like Mark's idea.
The league could be in a similar manner to the Alpha Grand Tournment. Where in each division everyone plays everyone else at least twice. With the added incentive for fast play, any unfinshed games at the end of the league penalise both players.
I think three divisions of equal size with perhaps a premiere league (depending on numbers). In the premiere league there would be more games per player.
As far as the structure my suggestion would be:
Division 3, 2, 1 have 16 players. Everyone plays everone else twice, a total of 30 games.
Premiere league have 8 players. Everyone plays everone else four times, a total of 28 games.
A four player promotion/relegation zone in each division.
Initally all interested players would be put into the divisions based on ranking. The 'next season' new entrants would have to start in division three and work their way up. As numbers increase the promotion/relegation zone increases, allowing more players to move up or down the ladder.
Any thoughts ?
