(Txt by 7:45 to get entered in the draft if running late, but your opportunity to pick your partner will be passed if you are not present during the draft).
MN Shuffle DYP
This is a form of 'every player for themself' hyper-draw invented by Tony Mason.
The draw works as follows: The first round of the bracket is drawn up exactly like a standard DYP. As teams advance (in either side of the bracket), they have a coin toss to determine the new teams between the four players meeting at that point in the bracket.
For example, if a team comprised of A and B wins its first match and meets up with C and D in the next round of the bracket, those four players then toss coins in a four-player mini-draw to determine the new teams for that match in the bracket. (You have a 1 in 3 chance of ending up with your most recent partner).
The finals gives an advantage to king-seat only if the two players coming from the winner's bracket draw each other again in the coin toss (though there'd be another shuffle if it goes to a 2nd set, when all bets are off!).
