You could think about handicapping the tournament.  

 

Rank players based on skill (say 1-5, with 5 being best).   Higher ranked players would have to win more game vs. a lower ranked player to advance based on each player's ranking.

 

In other words, if 2 players were matched together, and one was elite (ranked a 5), and the other was good (ranked a 2), the elite player would have to win 5 games to advance, vs. the good player having to win 2 games to advance.

 

Not perfect, but certainly gives the lower ranked player more of a chance.  A system similar to this is used in billiard tournaments.

 

This is a brilliant idea.

well... how much more money needed. If you need some cash added I can add some. Don't count me in tho, i won't win anyway. Just to get some others (players who can't pay) in also.

u just gave me an idea how this tournament should run like :p (so everyone has the same "chances")

 

you put together a top 8, top 10, top 12, whatever. these participants will play the tournament but cant pay the buy-ins.

 

they have to be sponsored by other people, the potential winnings are splitted beetwen participant and sponsor (can still be discussed how it should be splitted, 50-50 or 60-40 in favor to sponsor because he takes the risk, etc).

 

a participant may aswell be sponsored by multiple sponsors, but then the possible winnings will be lower, and ofcourse the losses higher. so betting on an underdog such as me :cool2: might give u the best payouts.

 

the best would be if everyone had 1 or 2 or 3, etc (not a too big difference, also still can be discussed)... sponsors, just to make it fair.

 

thoughts? likes?

You are sort of describing a Calcutta, a form of auction-style gambling very popular in golf tournaments.

Sounds good but I won't be betting on anyone, nor will I be participating in this. 

 

I hope some people can help me arrange for the people who would like to play though.

Id take a wild guess and say no? I may be pi**ing in the wind ;).

Serious note : Maybe edd could ask on Facebook if it's still going to run.
