good job posting the first round, but to be honest I wish it were a single thread without polls.
I dislike polls because I like to see who votes for who and why. With Polls you often don't get feedback and the votes are too anonymous. Also, (and not that anyone in this tourny would do this) it is too easy to get multiple votes using alternate logins. Lastly, the event is first to 7 votes, so if the vote is like 9-8 in the Poll and the person running the contest hasn't been keeping track of the vote, is there any way to find out who had 7 first?
The main reason I would have done it in a single post is to limit the forum clutter.
You will have people who disagree with your methods no matter what you do, I'm just dropping my 2cents.
Overall nice tourny tho bear thanks for running it.
