E-point tournament

E-point tournament

Been thinking about this for a while. Do you think it would be worthwhile to offer a tournament where there is an e-point entry fee?

For instance, Seven player entry, entry fee is ten e points and the winner receives 65 or so e points. I would like to see it at least tried once.

I like this idea also. I would like the Rapid format. Also, maybe give 45 points for first and 20 for second.

Yes, it would be great of course and actually it was implemented a few years ago, but there was no players enough with Epoints... Maybe we could envisage it again soon.

Maybe drop the entry fee down to 1 or 2 e-points. It would be just as exciting for me.

I like this idea too. Agreed with Scott on Rapid format and 1st and 2nd place prizes as well

Good idea. I'd definitely play tournaments with 1-2 e-point entry fees, and would be quite likely to play higher ones too. I like Scott's prize structure.

If the tournament is to go ahead, perhaps since it will be for some kind of entry fee, it could be trialled as a four player double round robin event.

By having only four players, it would make it much easier to get the tournament started considering only a small percentage of the players on here have e points.

Also by having double round robin, this ensures fairest possible circumstances for an entry fee tournament. It also means the same amount of games as a normal seven player, single round robin tournament.
