    RUSS AND CHRIS!!

    What about a Quick Fire Knock-Out tournament.
    1 day T/O outs.
    Have 128 players, split players in 4 main groups like #1, 5, 9,...125. so that there are 32 players in each group. Then let player #1 play the player #17 and #2 to play #18 .......#16 to play #32. If the result is even after two games (black & white), then have a new game started immediately where the lower ranked player have white.

    A possible seating could be like this. The major advantage would be that as soon a winner of one group is determined, the player would know the next opponent so the next round could be started immediately when the winners are known.

    Game # Player Ranked as


    Game #1 1&17 Game 1 Winner

    .................................................Game 1/15 Winner

    Game #15 15&31 Game 15 Winner

    Game #7 7&23 Game7 Winner

    Game #13 13&29 Game 13 Winner


    Game #5 5&21 Game 5 Winner

    Game #11 11&27 Game 11 Winner

    ...............................................................Games 5/13&3/9 Winner

    Game #9 9&25 Game 9 Winner

    ..................................................Game 3/9 Winner

    Game #3 3&19 Game 3 Winner


    Game #4 4&20 Game 4 Winner

    ..................................................Game 4/10 winner

    Game #10 10&26 Game 10 Winner

    ..............................................................Games 4/10&6/12 Winner

    Game #6 6&22 Game 6 Winner

    ..................................................Game 6/12 Winner

    Game #12 12&28 Game 12 Winner


    Game #8 8&24 Game 8 Winner

    ..................................................Game 8/14 Winner

    Game #14 14&30 Game 14 Winner

    ...............................................................Games 2/16&8/14 Winner

    Game #16 16&32 Game 16 Winner

    ...................................................Game 2/16 Winner

    Game #2 2&18 Game 2 Winner


    Then in the end, the four remaining players should play a Quick Fire Final against each other. I believe that there are several players who would like to enjoy these (most likely) high quality Quick Fire games in the end!
