    The tournaments tend to have the same bands from one set to the next. While 200 is a great range, why not mix it up...

    Current set...
    1000-1199
    1200-1399
    1400-1599

    Next set...
    900-1099
    1100-1299
    1300-1499
    1500-1699

    And then...
    950-1149
    1150-1349
    1350-1549

    The point is that by mixing the bands up a bit, most players will get a chance at being on the higher end of a tournament. Plus, it will allow players to play a greater range of rated players while still in the comfort of a banded tournament.

    Of course you are assuming that your rating remains static Nonetheless, I like the idea.
