Welcome to Rotating Doubles!
This tournament will feature 16 players. Every player will play one game teamed with everyone else in the tournament, and against everyone else twice.
Basically, play works like this. I'll take 16 players, and randomly divide them into four groups of 4 players. Each group will then play three games, meaning that everyone in each group is paired once, and plays everyone else in the group twice. To ensure that everyone is paired once, there will be 5 rounds. At the end of the 5th round, I will take the top four players, who will advance to the Finals. The Finals will work the same way - 4 players, 3 games. If one player manages to sweep, that player will be the Champion. In the event of a two-way tie (two players with 2 wins), those two players will play a single 1v1 "Poker Hand" for the Championship. In the event of a three-way tie, the round will repeat, until we have a winner.
If there is a tie for the top 4 players, all the players who are tied will play in one 'singles' game, and the top finishers will advance to the Finals. (for example - if 3 players tie for the last 2 spots in the Finals, than the first player eliminated is out, and the last two players are in, regardless of finish. if 4 players tie for the the final spot in the Finals, then only the winner of the 'singles' game advances)
All games will be played on Poker Club, all settings will be Sequential, Escalating, Chained, and Foggy.
As I will be giving out 3 games at a time, I'm going to require premium membership for this tournament.
