    In the Rookie cup II there are 32 entrants.
    After months of playing there's only one game going and seems like players that will progress to the 2nd round will be 25.
    There's a point in playing and waiting so many time to eliminate only 7 players from the current round?
    Can be estabilished a criterium that in case of draw (in two pairing tournys)makes progress only one player?
    Any proposing is welcome...........

    If two players in a dual tournament end on equal points, how do you decide which one goes forward? A toss of the coin?

    Maybe in duels, where there are so many rounds, only outright winners should go forward... ie you need at least 4 points to be sure of progressing.

    Well ... Ravello ... after the sceme in the Juno rooky tour this thread suddenly becomes more valuable. There should be a rule to stop this kind of nonsens.

    An idea could be to eliminate both players when the score is equal after two matches ... but I wont expect much support for this.

    A second idea ... when those two players have played eachother before .. use that score to decide which one goes through to the next round. Inevitably there are players who never played eachother before ... a solution then could be to use the value of token pieces from both matches and the player who took most (I know its a draw) proceeds.

    The most simple third solution ... the player with the lowest ranking proceeds.

    Well ... at least some possibilities to discuss.

    The third solution seems the more suitable to me,so the higher player will play it out instead of agreeing the game.
    Another solution but less praticable is to play a third match..........

    What about making it the person who won in the least moves on their game goes through. In the rare result of same moves then both players would deserve to go through. What do you think.... ???

    im any way not allowed in tournaments, but i think that your idea will simply discourage resignations.

    Yeah a very fair point people would keep moving because if they were going to lose 1 game they would need as many moves as possible.

    i understand wat you mean Ravello but you cant take a win away from someone. You cant say that a quicker checkmate in one game means that person is better. The only way i can see solving this is make dual tornaments best out of 3 games instead of 2. Then you run into the problem of who gets what color in the third game but it will make the tourneys so much quicker.

    this gets my support! KNOCK THEM BOTH OUT!
    i see no problem with it - until the final round where a rematch would be necessary.
    but in this world of modern technology i really do not see the need for group size 2 tournaments anyway.
