Btm 2015 Dble Elimination Tournament
Question asked by Todd Beaver - April 22, 2017 at 10:01 AM
I have a monthly tournament that has 3 games of qualifying. The field is cut to the top 16,. Then they are seeded in a double elimination bracket. Is there any way to set this up in BTM 2015? I have been doing it by hand but this tournament is growing and I thought if it could be run in BTM2015 it would be so much easier. We have BTM2015 autoscore version. I also have BLS2017 autoscore. Is there anyway to setup this style tournament in either program I have or is there something else that would work? Thank you

You can use BTM-2015 or its successor BTM-2017 to handle the three-game qualifier to determine the top 16 to be put into the double elimination bracket, but beyond that, everything would have to be done manually.
Set up your tournament as a three-game, with handicap set appropriately if used, and run a report after the three games to determine the top 16. 
However, the double eliminations themselves, seeding, and tiebreakers if necessary, would be all manual. I'm not aware of any CDE products supporting eliminators of any kind (outside of eliminator brackets, but that wouldn't apply here).
