Pros & Cons of the RR format @ YEC

What do you think are the Pros and Cons of the Round Robin format used at the YEC?

For me....

PROS: fans get to see more marque matches; a player can lose the 1st match and still have a chance to win

CONS: Players doent get easier "early" rounds to get their game up to "A" level producing some lopsided results you usually dont see (ex... Petrova crushing Momo 2&2 today);you can get a semi-finalist from a group who has only won 1 of their RR matches; only 8 players get in where 16 used to get in before

Re: Pros & Cons of the RR format @ YEC

They tried it with 16, but there aren't 16 players on the same level.
At least here, 4 or 5 of them have a real chance to win the title.
No reason to have another 8

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

You just gave a good example of why RR is better.

Re: Pros & Cons of the RR format @ YEC

Maybe having young players here like Anna C, Ana I and Nicole would be interesting.
But they all get a fair chance to get here next year.
So does Anastasia

Anyway I think a 16 format is better!
No more "no-match" like Sharapova last year against Petrova
