"While any division between first and third places of the remaining 2/3 of the prize pool maintains equal equity, a prize pool partition of 3:2:1 seems logical because it makes each match played worth the same 1/6 of the pot to the winner; we don't know before playing both matches which match is the semifinal and which match is the final, and both outcomes occur with equal likelihood."
Was it considered doing the new system but also adjusting the ABT points that way also? Of the 7 points available from the standard 4:2:1 make them instead 21/6: 14/6: 7:6? Then the ABT points have no equity swing at all from the draw.
