    Since there will be 9 people in the second round of the 1300 division,
    who will get a bye?

    This is really a pairing question and Dave will do that when the time
    comes. My guess is that the winner of the pawnking vs maggoteer
    games will get a bye. Dave correct me if I am wrong.

    I think the one who has the highest rating should get the bye.

    why?, how many advantages does the strongest player need, give us
    all a break give the lowest rated player the bye

    From what I understand that is the way it will be. I see what you
    mean.
    Here are the signup ratings:
    Pawnking 1399 Simon
    Shougi 1394 [Ben]
    Maggoteer 1387 Mike
    Looks to me that if Pawnking loses to magoteer and Shougi wins his
    round one. Looks like Shougi might get the bye. Again, Dave being
    more knowledgeable on Fide Tournament rules will clarify when he
    come on later. Also, Maybe we should wait till we get to the river
    before we decide on how to cross it.
