Target Tourney

By: Busted Wagon @ 21:00 (EDT) / 383 / Comment ( 2 )

Target Player Tournament Series:

I propose a multi-tournament series where the final tournament qualifiers would be based on the combined results of all previous tournaments played in the series prior to the final

tournament, or those awarded with a 'target pass'.

For example, the tournament is scheduled as a 'best of five'; the final tournament in the series would be a result of the top 10% of the combined results overall (positions?) during the

first four tournaments played in the series, and those players that have been rewarded with a 'target pass'.

The final series tournament would start with all player receiving equal chips.


Rules:

[Game Rules]
1. Normal game rules apply for the type of tournament played.

[Target Rules]

1. TARGET PLAYER(S). Any player deemed a member of the 'target pool' is considered a 'target player'.

[Comments]
The organizer of the tournament will announce/post prior to the start of the series the players that are deemed members of the target pool. The pool is final once the series starts.

2. SPECIFIC TOURNAMENT TARGETS.  The series organizer will announce/post prior to the start of any individual series tournament the targets for that tournament that are members of the

target pool.

3. TARGET PLAYER SHOWDOWN. If you are in a pot at showdown with any target player that is ALL-IN, and your hand is of a less ranking than the highest target player hand (regardless of how

many chips you have), you will not be able to play in another series tournament unless you qualify for the final tournament.

[Example 1]
Target is all-in with 50 chips; You have 500 in chips. Target hand beats yours - you can continue play in this tournament; you will not be able to play in another series tournament unless

you qualify for the final tournament.

[Example 2]
Target 1 is all-in with 50 chips and Target 2 is all-in with 75 chips; You have 500 in chips. You beat target 1 but target 2 hand beats yours; you will not be able to play in another series

tournament unless you qualify for the final tournament.

[Example 3]
Target 1 is all-in with 50 chips and Target 2 is all-in with 75 chips; You have 65 in chips. You beat both target 1 and target 2 hands but are knocked out of the tournament.  You will be

able to continue in series play.

[TOURNAMENT PASS]
If win a pot without chopping and a target player is all-in, you will also win a 'tournament pass' to the final tournament in the series.

[Overall Comments]

Normal knock-out tournaments, for the most part, provide a great incentive to 'put it all in' in more than 'advantageous' positions - I get it. From a PSO point of view, lets examine this a

bit. A knock-out player enters a pot - multiple callers/raisers trying for a piece of the prize. What's the incentive to enter the pot - the knock-out prize. Many times - no skill

neccessary - bingo at its best. So let's add a bit more incentive to enter/not enter the pot -  a 'penalty'.
