    Something of a milestone reaching 1,000 tournaments. Let's hope Russ has something special in mind!

    We still have about 2 months until this happens, judging from the rate of tournament starts over the last 110.

    You're right, perhaps a 1/14 T/O would be better 😛

    EDIT: Actually, it's only 1998 games 😉

    1998 per person, 999,000 total

    Edit: and 999,000 is about 2/3 of the total games that have been played at RHP.

    I remember Russ saying something about a slowdown when starting big group tournaments (2005 Championship etc.). I'd hate to think what would happen if he tried to start almost a million games at once.

    Oh god imagine the MAP of the month totals.

    ONLY three tourneys to reach the magic number.

    A really BIG tourney would be the thing to do, but I fear after the Site championship started a lot of people are deep in games still.

    I count seven (7).
    I think this tournament comes a bit too fast after the championship too to make it a big one. What other special things can be done with a tournament like this? An unrated tournament where the lower rated players can have a piece advantage against higher rated players? Say, a queen up when playing someone 800 higher than you, a rook up when playing someone 500 higher than you, something like that?

    I like this very much, but think it can't be automated enough for a tournament.

    You mean 999 per person, 999,000 total...

    ooooooh, no wait, one white game and one black game... so 1998 per person... 1,998,000 total
