The Inaugural Doubles Knockout 2013

27 Feb 2013 - a good suggestion has been presented, namely to have a doubles knockout tournament, i.e. players would pair up and the sum of their prediction scores would compete against that of an opponent pair for a calendar month. We can try this new format out over March, April and May with the first 8 pairings to come forward, with a view to running a full doubles tournament next season over six months (up to 32 pairings).

Doubles champ mugs

Eight pairings were entered into the trial doubles tournament on a first-come-first-served basis. The draw for the doubles quarter-finals to be played over March 2013 was broadcast live on Friday 1 March 2013 at 8pm GMT or thereabouts on http://justin.tv/hashfootery, after which we were immediately banned for some reason.

In the event of a tie...

  1. the pairing with the greater number of "3 pointers" in the current month is deemed the winner;
  2. if still tied, the pairing with more points from the previous month is deemed the winner;
  3. if still tied, the pairing with the greater number of "3 pointers" in the previous month is deemed the winner;
  4. if still tied, repeat these same tie-breakers for each month before until a winner can be declared
  5. in the highly unlikely event that a winning pairing cannot be determined, a decision will be made by @downwithdesign, @kirstieh and @gerrymulvenna
