Franco: See this article and discussion for info on how the 1998 contest worked: There was also a similar contest at the Geneva 1990 World Championships, won I believe by Benito Garozzo. Maybe someone can find a link to those hands, as well. There ...
Format for 3-way Match with 2 survivors
I voted for VP scoring in 3-way matches. I prefer to view a 3-way match as just a small Round-Robin, and would score it as such. I think there are reasonable arguments on both sides of this issue.
Format for 3-way Match with 2 survivors
For what it's worth, my opinion on scoring multiple-session 3-way matches by segments versus by whole is now to score by whole if there are more than two segments, but score by segments if there are only two segments. This is consistent with our current policy to score regular ...

Nicolas: If you are interested, see my reply to David Caprera upthread, regarding the matter of computing VPs in segments rather than once on the whole match.
Format for 3-way Match with 2 survivors

Note: scoring a 3-way match by VPs is equivalent to treating it as we do a Round Robin. I don’t see how that can be considered crazy.

Nicolas (and others) Whether we agree or not, I appreciate your input. When new ideas are suggested, it is good to have them sanity-checked with a variety of different perspectives.
Format for 3-way Match with 2 survivors
Yes, but I think those are 3-ways qualifying 1. Used for the rare numbers where the scheme of 2-ways and 4-ways can't work. I suspect that the form of scoring wouldn't matter in a 3-way qualifying 1. (Best VP scoring team would also be the best IMP scoring ...

In the USBC's, the earliest stages of the event tend to be Round-Robin formats, with later stages being all KO's. In a RR, VP's are used, and it is even theoretically possible for a team to qualify without winning a match, if their losses are small enough ...
