Double elimination chess tournament console vs console - ending in a draw?
So I'm planning on pitting some Gen 2 to Gen 5 consoles in a chess match against each other (Atari 2600 to PSX). I decided on a double elimination, and tried a round to see how it would fare. My first match between the Atari 2600 and the NES resulted in a draw. (threefold repetition). So.. how does that get counted? I need a loser for a bracket move. How is it done with chess in real life? Should I be using a different bracketing system?
I have 10 competitors,
I have no problems adding systems as long as a popular chess program was available for it.
