  3. Journeymen Fall Classic - One of the toughest tournaments in the USA: Oct 6 & 7, 2018 The event that everyone wants to see! The best of the best from across the country squaring o in a preseason modi ed round-robin format. Last year, our sixth year, was outstanding. We had 500 competitors from 32 different states, 45 of whom were nationally ranked. We anticipate an even more competitive environment in 2018! Best of the Best: This is a true national battleground for wrestlers. It’s all meat and potatoes! Four-, six-, eight-man or 12-man round-robin brackets with all decorated and accomplished opponents (three to four matches for each wrestler) National, State or New England place finishers, followed by state qualifiers (If applicable), get preference. Didn’t make the cut in the Journeymen Fall Classic-HS due to being lighter criteria? Don’t stress. You can work your way into the event by wrestling in this mini tournament. Winners of their respective weight/bracket earn a slot in Sunday’s competition. Winners must weigh in again for Sunday’s competition. There will be a two-pound allowance, and qualifying wrestlers can weigh in directly after completion on Saturday. How do I participate?

    Example 2 (Case III): In the above example, these three wrestlers have the same record and have beaten each other. A and B are tied with 12 “quality wins” points. However, C drops out and takes third place with only 6 “quality wins” points. At this point, since C has broken the tie, the process goes back to the head-to-head between wrestlers A and B. Wrestler B takes first place because he owns the head-to- head victory over wrestler A, who receives second place.

    Example 1 (Case I): Wrester A Wrestler B Wrestler C Record 2-1 2-1 2-1 Head-to-Head Beat C, Lost to B Beat A, Lost to C Beat B, Lost to A Quality Wins 1 Pin, 1 FFT 1 Decision, 1 FFT 2 Decisions Margin of Victory 0 3 6 Near Falls 4 3 0 Takedowns 2 3 2 In the above example, these three wrestlers have the same record and have beaten each other. However, A has the most “quality wins” points (12), vs.9 for wrestler B and 6 for wrestler C. Thus, wrestler A receives first place. However, at this point, since A has broken the tie, the process begins all over again for wrestlers B and C. Ultimately, wrestler C takes second place because he owns the head-to-head victory over wrestler B.

    Taming the Three-Headed Monster Tournaflex Round-Robin Tie-Breaker Criteria The following criteria are applied in order to break ties in a round-robin weight class: 1. Most wins. Byes/forfeits count as wins. 
 2. Head-to-head vs. opponents with same number of wins 
 3. Quality wins. Pin/DQ/FFT/Default count as 6, Tech 5, Major 4, Decision 3. 
 4. Margin of victory. Net point differential summed up for matches won by 
decision only. 
 5. Most near falls. Total number of back points accumulated in all matches. 
 6. Most takedowns. Total number of takedowns accumulated in all matches. 
 Breaking Multi-Way Ties: It is important to understand that in the event of a three (or more) way tie, these criteria will be applied in order only until the tie is broken, at which point there will be two “groups”, a top group (including everyone tied with the top wrestler within this criteria) and a bottom group (made up of everyone else). The criteria will be reapplied separately to each of those two groups, again in order, beginning at the top. The process repeats until no ties remain. Thus this algorithm is equally effective for four- and five-way ties. A three-way tie in particular can be broken for at a specific criteria in one of three ways: I. A higher than B, B higher than C 
 II. A higher than B, B tied with C 
 III. A tied with B, C lower than both A and B For cases I and II above, A is awarded first place, and B and C are awarded second and third place based on whichever wrestler had the head-to-head victory against the other. For case III above, C falls to third place and A and B are awarded first and second place based on whichever of the two wrestlers won the head-to-head battle.

    Ok, this is how it works. We tried to break wrestlers up into tiers A, B and Cs. Ideally the As and Bs wrestle one another. The Bs and Cs wrestle each other. This blends the brackets slightly, but also produces solid early season match ups. Coaches wanted a blend in the top 2 brackets. It's week 2 and they "don't need a bloodbath". We lost nearly 30 something wrestlers from week one that were initially slated to compete. That said we sometimes feathered the top two brackets. In other cases, the two best athletes were arguably from the same conference, so the coaches wanted separation because they see each other multiple times; which was achieved by one in the A bracket, one in the B bracket.
