Re: YEC: Why NOT Inlcude a 3rd Place Match On Final Day
I think this is an interesting idea. I think a 3rd place play-off would work much better at YEC than at the Slams.
I do think though that it would be really important to sound out the players. A would think that a lot of the top players would not be interested, but maybe not. I don't know so thats why it would be great to know what they think. In the Olympics there is still a bronze medal to win for your country.
Another factor is crowds. Would enough turn up early or stay late for the match? Don't want to see a match better 2 players who aren't exactly desperate to finish 3rd playing in front of a luke warm, 1/3 filled stadium.
Some sports have got rid of 3rd Place play-off, there is no play-off in European Championships anymore.
