I can imagine playing a 'plain' US - Europe tourney, without complicating things with pairs and foursomes.... in my view that would resemble clan-play too much
ok, foursomes can be pretty hard with chess. Still, the idea of a Chess Ryder cup is attractive. Lets say every players plays 4 games vs. 4 opponents. So 2 games white, 2 black, but not the usual "1 black + 1 white minimatch."
This way a lot of players can participate, even those with high gamesloads. And...the scoring/setup is really different from clan challenges.
Keep on brainstorming! Who's next?
