The Follow-up Formats:
No-Conflict Singles: This event is meant for those eliminated early from the bring or as a warm-up event for late arrivals for the dyp. It will run double elim (race to 7 in the loser's) if 8 players or less, otherwise single elim. MN Shuffle DYP This is a form of 'every player for themselves' hyper-draw invented by Tony Mason. The draw works as follows: The first round of the bracket is drawn up exactly like a standard DYP. As teams advance (in either side of the bracket), they have a coin toss to determine the new teams between the four players meeting at that point in the bracket. For example, if a team comprised of A and B wins its first match and meets up with C and D in the next round of the bracket, those four players then toss coins in a four-player mini-draw to determine the new teams for that match in the bracket. (You have a 1 in 3 chance of ending up with your most recent partner). The finals gives an advantage to king-seat only if the two players coming from the winner's bracket draw each other again in the coin toss (though there'd be another shuffle if it goes to a 2nd set, when all bets are off!).
