    cool, so how many rounds, is it elimination, how are you going to determine who played in the round 2?
  3. 05 Apr '07 03:36
    1 match elimination with 2nd round players being matched as the round 1 games finish.

    The first two players to reach round 2 are matched together and so forth.

    Exceptions will be those with great rating differences, I will try to pair by ratings.

    Forgive me for my ignorance, this is my first attempt at this.

    I'm just trying to see what the rules are so people can decide if they want to join or not

    Maybe I had better research it a little bit first... I think I jumped the gun.


    Lets put it off for a while.

    You could just number the entrants in order of when they entered, then draw the pairings out of a hat. Or a bowl if you don't have a hat.

    Sure, there might be massive differences in ratings with some pairings, but if I go to an OTB open tournament, I expect to play people with vastly different ratings.

    Ok, lets continue then.

    We have 3 people in now. Need 8 more.

    That will be a problem for a few people.

    lol.. hard eh?

    anyways, i can't join this one, my game load will be maxed for a while.

    Actually wait a minute, when do we start by? I have one game that's wrapping up. I'd like to play cuz 1/0 time controls will keep it moving quickly too. Maybe we could PM some high rated nonmembers and see if they want to play too.

    Anyways, if I have another day or two to empty my games out, i'll play (i'll pm you when i get a spot open to confirm everything)

    1/0 is a bit too fast for me and I fear I won't stand a chance, since I've looked at the ones who joined already: all far above 1200
