SURVEY - Backgammon Needs you!

And as has been seen in the Danish Championship this format is perhaps the least fair from a sporting perspective.

The way its used in the Danish championship, some players will receive 2 byes along the way (1 of which very late in the tournament which obviously has a huge impact on the equity) while others will only receive 1 bye and some players will not receive a single bye.

This format is to be avoided because it can easily produce an odd number of players for the cup-part of the tournament. If the cup would consist of 64 or 32 players, then it would be acceptable to have those byes, but when you're supposed to reach the quarterfinals, then the byes really matter.
