    Handicap tournaments would be interesting.

    Maybe apply some enforced opening moves e.g. if your rating is more than 400 above your opponent you have to open by moving a knight out and then returning it to its starting position second move.

    Maybe for 300 difference advance a pawn that nobody would normally chose. I guess somebody who knew a lot more about chess than m ...[text shortened]... ing difference, but I am sure you could handicap a player by obligating them to use a weird opening.
    I've heard of "knight-odds" games or "rook-odds" games, where the stronger side gives up a piece to start.

    Perhaps less people would give you higher chances of getting a quick start! With 16 min and max could take awhile old friend.

    I like to play chess with old men in the park. But it's so hard to find 32 of them.

    Never underestimate an old man, may be a big mistake on the person that does! 🙂

    You're at 44, now it's tough math but i figure if you join the tournament and play another two games that's still less than 50. Let the circus begin 😜

    My friend did you happen to check the pending challenges I am in that could start at anytime? I will be staying out of this circus round! 😉 My Clan Challenges are more important to me.
