I'll be happy to see the regular format come back. A tournament like this focuses more on who you bowl when rather than how well you bowl in relation to the rest of the field. A bowler could have shot 268-279, but if his opponent shot 270-290, he is out of the whole tournament, even if those 2 bowlers were the only ones to break 210 those 2 games. The concept is diffrent, yes, but it is flawed. Luck of the draw becomes more a factor than the actual skill of the players as a whole. The original format is much better.

However, the original format is not without its downfalls either. A player can lead a 56 game format by 500+ pins, lose one match, and come in second place. It's happened before, and perhaps the best solution lies between these two formats. However, given the 2 choices, I'd have to say the original format comes out way ahead. :p
