    How about setting up a thematic tourney that is hidden from the entrants. Basically you sign up for the tourney but you don't know what the opening will be. Each subsequent round is a new position, thus keeping everyone on unfamiliar territory.

    You could even theme them, ie; Gambit thematic (openings involving pawn sacrifices), Closed thematic (openings that lead to closed positions), etc...

    not that this has anything to do with your idea, but what happened to the old avatar?

    I like the idea. It would give lower-rated players a chance and higher-rated players a variety.

    I'm just paying temporary homage to The Mighty Boosh. Mutant psychedelic bunny will be back, he's just feeling a bit sick from all those carrots.
