    RUSS,
    Would it be possible to have the chart that shows which game winners are going to meet in the next round?
    This allow the following round start as soon as both games are completed! And it would spedd up the tournaments because it is highly unlikely that the same player would be involved in the longest games for each round!
    Another advantage would be that the player could perhaps prepare a little bit for the next round because the next opponent was known by studying the opponents prior games.

    Is anybody interested in my dad's (Luck) suggestion?

    Would that not be nice if the second round started immediately when the players who were scheduled to play each other in the next round could start the game as soon as those players had won their first round games.

    PS: This would speed up the tournaments.

    I could do this, but it would require quite a lot of work. Although I should be able to do random pairings quite soon, this job would be a 'biggie'. Give me a little time, and I will get round to it.
