If you have a complaint about unfair organizing, you can send me a PM. I need to have the tournament name and a link to the thread, and it also helps if the post is organized into complete sentences. You'll need to clearly lay out the complaint because I can't do full research from scratch on my own time.

Wow-I believe his format for a double elimination tourney may have been flawed a bit, but to make an accusation like this is completely ridiculous.

If he had run the tourney like a normal double elimination bracket he would have won the winners bracket and the loser would have to beat him twice anyway. This way the losers bracket really only ends up having to play him once in the finals.

I have gave him a few web-sites that have normal double elimination brackets so issues like this cannot come up in the future.

I think the doctor is one of the better new tourney organizers and wants to be fair always. He gave me the information about this tourney and asked if he should just abandon it. After reviewing what went down he ran the tourney very well and deserves a chance to win from (the winners bracket).

I am not a tourney director, but I wanted to weigh in on this issue.
