MN Shuffle DYP -
A form of 'every player for themselves hyper-draw' draw your partner invented by Tony Mason. The bracket is drawn up like a standard 'draw your partner.' As teams proceed in the bracket, they will 're-shuffle' with their tentative 'opponents' to form new teams for each match. For example, if A and B and C and D each won their previous match and meet each other in the next round, they will have a mini-draw between those four players to determine the teams for that round (usually by coin tosses). A would have a 1 in 3 chance of ending up with their former partner, B, but a 2 in 3 chance of playing against B with either C or D as their new partner.
This proceeds through each round. In double elimination, King Seat honors (requiring a double dip) only becomes relevant if the partners that won kings seat re-draw themselves at the final shuffle (there would be another shuffle before the 2nd set if necessary).
