Abstract

Many games played between two contestants start with a random deal, which introduces luck from the deal. The concept of 'duplication', commonly employed in Bridge tournaments, can be used to nullify that luck in a tournament. This paper poses a model for the contest between any two players and analyses the model for a tournament which employs the duplication principle. Two example tournaments on a new game are analysed.
