It allows tournaments to get done faster by
eliminating a round. The match count doesnt change but a round and the associated wait time is eliminated. Honestly when coaches enter seeding criteria how often do first round losers end up in the 3/4 match?
It also lets kids that arent as strong get a few extra matches at their level. It is hard to take weaker "varsity" kids to a JV tournament. The backside/consolation is a happy medium for our medium wrestlers.
It is probabaly good for mid level tournaments and events that have to end in one day.
