Tournaments or Money play?
Because of the huge swings happening in Eskgammon it’s quite suitable for money play.
As far as tournaments go the preferred/most suitable tournament style so far has been a swing tournament (or that’s what they were called in GammonEmpire/Truemoneygames).
League (Round Robin) play also works well (everyone plays everyone once).
One reason normal tournaments like double elimination aren’t common (yet) is because no one has a clue about doubling windows and other fun stuff yet.
