I'll post a more detailed description of how the round robin would work in the next day or two.
Just to be clear, there would be no round robin at the *end*. The round robin would be used at the *beginning* to place players into one of two single elimination brackets, either the High bracket (top 16 from the round robins) or the Low bracket (all others, would have byes). We'd agree to a split of the total pot between the High and Low brackets, with something like 2/3 vs. 1/3 (you want people to want to be in the High bracket).
I think I could prepare a TD package for LSJohn or someone to use if people like the idea and I'm not there.
this option would certainly allow everyone to play the most games with the most people.
