Gold Rush / Mid-Flight : Pros and Cons

http://www.acbl.org/acbl-content/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Updated-Event-Structure-Notice.pdf

 

This year we added the Mid-Flight Pairs to our local regional tournament schedule. The event was successful. Every novice I have spoken to loves the Gold Rush / Mid-Flight / A-X pair game format.

So we decided to change all the pair games to GR/MF/AX for 2016. 

When the schedule came out, we got some pushback from players who were against this format. Personally I think the GR/MF/AX format is great as it makes the A/X field stronger and creates a more challenging and rewarding (more points) game. We compromised and changed some of the games back to stratified.

I was wondering if anyone had any comments on pros or cons of separate GR/MF/AX versus a single stratified pair game.
