Pairs
« on: July 13, 2018, 01:23:20 PM »
Following on from the report by Decar of the Team competition in Germany last week, has there ever been an online pairs competition?

I'm thinking of two players in each team, but playing individually, in a 4-player online game (maybe harder to arrange?). The combined score takes the win, which might even be from those in 2nd and 3rd, or 1st and 4th, depending on individual scores. Each pair plays against every other pair.

Or like the Davis Cup in tennis, where A1 plays B1 and A2 plays B2, then there's a 4-player (as above), followed by A1/B2 and A2/B1 if required. Straight knockout, or each team plays all the others, depending on numbers.

Maybe there are good reasons to avoid this idea? I'm not offering to run it, but just wondering ...

Thanks, Decar. Reading through that thread I can see that the challenges of getting each set of four players together was a major problem ...

It was by no means trivial - It's a much more suitable format for real-life in-person games!
