    Agreed. For me anyway, the banded grands are too much of a good thing, but a banded octet is the sweet spot. I can totally screw up two games and still feel like I'm in the running. πŸ˜›

    You know, I always avoided the open Octets, but you might want to try them. It's luck of the draw who you're up against, but you get a much wider variety of opponents that way, some better than you but some lower skills, too. Makes a nice mix.

    It's refreshing to have a whole new group of people pounding the daylights out of me. πŸ˜‰

    Yes more banded octets please - it's just no fun playing in tournaments where I don't feel at all competitive. I can play stronger players at any time, when I play a tournament I like the challenge of playing people I should stand a chance against.

    I second that... 'banded' tournaments are rather scarce (seemingly so). Either they all go very quickly or only a limited number is offered.

    The last set of banded octets was numbers 8197-8209 started on 4 September. The most recently created tournament is number 8525.

    So there have been 316 new public tournaments in a row which have not been banded octets. It seems nobody's listening to us.
