    Just a question, if 2 players in any group finish on equal points what
    happens? A play off? Both go through?

    I believe the payers with highest points and besides the group winners
    should go to the next round.
    Look at the group winners and their points, anyone with higher or
    equal points than a group winner should go to the next round.

    Sincetely,

    Nice idea in an ordinary world but with Schliemann dropping out it's
    unbalanced that group. This effectively means that the winner of that
    group will have fewer points. I'd like to them (Chris & Russ) to agree
    to your idea because it will give me a chance too but .....

    I agree that it would be nice if some of the lesser rated players could
    progress beyond the first round. So how about we extend the
    tournament by instigating 4 rounds:

    The top two from each group in round 1 go through to Round 2.

    Round 2 has 10 groups of 5, the top two going through to round 3.

    Round 3 has 2 groups of 5, the top two going through to round 4.

    Round 4 has a single group of four players, winner takes all.

    Just a thought,

    i think we should be strict in allowing only the group winners to
    proceed to the next round. it is the nature of competition that player
    get eliminated, whether in the first round or next. modifying the
    qualification criteria seems too arbitrary.
    respectfully,

    I agree. I think more people will enter the tournaments if they think
    they have a greater chance of staying in it longer. No one like to
    loose, and with the way the groups are set up it is quite obvious who
    should win them. The only things that can throw a spanner in the
    works are timeouts and newer players who do not have a rating level
    to their ability yet.

    This does not need to apply to every tournament, but I am sure we
    could have one where only the bottom player in the group dropped
    out - this gives everyone in the group something to play for and a
    much longer tournament that a lot more people will get enjoyment out
    of. If people do not think that is there cup of team, then they can
    enter a tournament where only the winner of the froup goes through.

    Cheers

    Since the 100 to 1 has already started it would seem unreasonbable
    to change rules. However I think Andrew has a good point about more
    people playing and it could be implemented in the New Year tourny.

    As it looks now, it could be for example 29 players going to the next
    round, how do you do the paring? Bets would be to add some more
    players!
    The same way it is in track & field tournaments, the winners and the
    best times goes to the next round! A lot more interesting for the less
    good players like me!!

    Sincerely,

    Harri / Luck
