NorCal DYP: My name for the standard draw format I used to play in San Francisco with three notable features:
(a) a Hi/Lo draw*
(b) forced Roto in the second game only
(c) win by 2 in the third game (ceiling of 8).
*To encourage a competitive field/parity, the entrants will be divided by skill into two fields, such that the 'Hi' players will randomly draw 'Lo' players. Ranking will be at TD discretion (with any player ever officially ranked a Pro default starting on the Hi-side).
Singles Triathlon: An event involving three singles formats, ITSF singles, Forward Shoot-Out, and Goalie Wars. Matches are best 2/3 in which the winner of the coin-toss chooses between drop+side or the format of the first game (Singles, FSO, or GW). For the second game, the loser of the first game picks between the two remaining unplayed formats, and the final format must be played if the match goes to a third deciding game. Thus all formats are used in a 3-game match and no format can be played more than once per match.
