    I would like to propose the following change that would primarily affect tournament play.

    Under current rhp practice, when two players split their games, they are either both advanced to the next level or given two more games against each other (depending on what stage the tournament is in). This is cumbersome and inconclusive - especially in the later stages of a tourney.

    Instead of two new games, I propose one more game - a third game as a tie breaker. Whichever player got his/her victory (in the previous 2 games) in the fewest moves - is allowed to choose colors for Game 3.

    What is the consensus view on this?

    Placing the identical post in three forums is dangerously close to spam.

    I suggest to discuss only in thread
    Thread 147916

    there have points been made.

    I hope this helps to reconcentrate the discussion
