Suggestions / Double Tournament
« on: September 23, 2011, 08:08:46 PM »
This is my first post but I have read almost a year back and cannot find any other related posts to this topic. We run our league as a double tournament. 
That means everyone must buy in for $20 to get in the main tournament but then everyone has the option to also buy in for a second tournament for $10. These are actually the same tournament.
For example I might have 30 people buy in the first tournament and 24 of them buy into the second tournament. Now I have two prize lists to pay out.
The first tournament pays 5 places and obviously the last 5 players left in the tournament will get paid.
The second tournament (because of my published schedule based on entries) only pays 4 places. Of those players paying the second buyin, they finish 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 7th in the main tournament. In the main tournament the 3rd, 4th, and 6th pace finishers did not pay the extra buyin. So 1st, 2nd and 5th get two payouts and 7th gets a single payout from the $10 tournament.

I know TD cannot handle this now (I run the $10 prize list manually and can explain how I do that if anyone is interested) but does it make sense to add this functionality?

I have never heard or seen any kind of tournament that offers this kind of flexibility but I created it to allow some players the option to play while not creating as much of a financial hardship. The players (both single and double participants) seem to really enjoy it.
