Announcing the formation of a single elimination bracket type (similar to tennis championships) Carcassonne tournament; anyone with a rating may enter, unlimited number of entrants, 16 minimum.

RULES:
Initial pairings will be made "top down"; that is, the highest ranked player plays #2, #3 against #4, #5 against #6, etc., and winners advance to the next round within their bracket. Each match will consist of two games, one white and one black for each player. If there is an odd number of players in any round, the lowest rated player will receive a bye (automatic advancement), but no player should get more than one bye in the entire tournament; otherwise, in a later round, the lowest rated player who has not yet received a bye will get it.

You win a match with two wins, one win and one draw, or two draws as the lower rated player. Split matches (one win by each player) will be decided by the largest tally. The higher rated player's tally is their combined score of both games; the lower rated player's tally is their combined score of both games plus handicap (rating difference divided by 4. EXAMPLE: A player rated 62 points lower than opponent would have a handicap of 15.5. If unsure how to calculate this upon completion, just post game scores.) If tallies equal, lower rated player advances. With equal rating, split match and equal tally, highest individual game score wins. NOTE: Handicap is a consideration only in split matches. Ratings used will be those current as of the particular assignment date (start of a round).

TIME CONTROL: 3 days
PLANNED START DATE: January 5, 2011
A timeout in either game constitutes a forfeit, regardless of whether the remaining game is concluded or its result.

If you wish to join, post a reply here, or send me PM, and tell others who you believe may be interested.

The rules when one match is won and one is lost sound complicated, so I guess I just have to win every match Wink
