What is the tourney format?

we usually play a 3 round Format. say we have 32 players (we sometimes do at Al's!)

First round you're in groups of 4, you play 3 games from a Bank of 5 and points are 4,2,1,0 for 1st-4th on each game.  Winner gets to pick next game or position.  Top 2 in each group move on.

3nd round would be similar format, mixing up the Bank of 5 a bit, but Only 1 player from each group moves on to the Final 4

Last Group is usually same format, 3 Games from a different Bank of 5.

Tie Breaker game is usually announced ahead of time as they can happen in any round

Ok thanks. 

FYI:

I calculated an approximate tourney value based on what you described.  Just thought I'd share this with you and others if they wanted an approximate idea of the new WPPR value with this format.

If 32 people participate in the tourney, then the base value will be 32 x 0.5 = 16 points. 

I assumed the rating and ranking strength will be about 2.4 points based on values of previous POPs events. 

So the value before the TGP is 18.4 points.

Based on your description, (4 total rounds including finals of 3 games) the number of games being played is 12, so the TGP is 48% (4% per game x 12)

Final (ESTIMATED) value for 1st place is 0.48 x 18.4 points = 8.83 points
