What is a compass draw and how does it work?
This format is a wonderful format to give players an opportunity to play lots of matches. It also can accommodate different ability levels in one draw. It works best for 8, 16, 32 or 64 players, so that there are no byes are in the draw.

* At the end of round 1: * The winners go east * The losers go west * At the end of round 2: * The east losers go north * The west losers go south * At the end of round 3: * The east losers go northeast * The north losers go northwest * The west losers go southwest * The south losers go southeast * At the end of round 4: * The losers are out of the tournament (unless it is announced in writing before the start of the first match of the tournament that there will be semifinal play-offs); * The winners play the finals on each draw sheet.For a draw of 16, use only the top half of the draw at each compass point.
