DUAL RING Tournament Format. Tournament format for handling uneven number of players.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Chess clocks added running out of time as a new way to lose a chess game.  This format added another way to get eliminated.

I have looked at ways to make this SANE (Single Alternating Non-Elimination), and not sure how to do it.  Idea here is to try to come up with a format that can handle a prime number of players playing, or some other way where you can't divide the number of players into sections.

The DUAL RING is also meant to handle more than chess.
