    Can we have an 1800-1900 banded tournie, with 3/7 time controls, groups of 4 please. Make it a mini if you like, but 64 entrants would be groovy. Thanks.

    Seconded, but I think they'd have to make one for all bands to be fair.

    You think you'll get 64 entrants out of a player pool of 134?

    Right, might as well make it out of 150.

    1 to 30 of 204

    204 from 1800-1900, where'd you get 134?

    that is why i suggested a mini banded. Normally there are about 26-30 entrants. If the group sizes are slightly smaller then we might get a few more entrants. A dual would be ideal in fact.

    I found a player on the highest rating table with a rating of 1800 and a player on 1900. The difference between the two was 134. Of course that's just an estimate as we don't actually go on current rating but 30 day peak. However it's normally a pretty safe assumption that close to the same number are cut off at the top end as are included in the bottom. Probably more at the bottom thanks to the rating distrbution but that should balance with the fact that I didn't remove non-subs from consideration.

    Ah, I used "Find Player" and put in a minimum rating of 1800 and a max. of 1900, but this, of course, still includes the non-subs, so your estimate is probably closer.

    EDIT: wow, mods this is probably something that should be looked into, I just searched 1800-1900's again and found that not only are the layers in that rating bracket included, but also many p1200's, what's this about?

    Another EDIT: I figure that they are in the 1800's, but haven't played over 5 games, so this explains it...

    This has been like this since day 1. Once a player has completed a single rated game he/she has a rating (just still shown as p1200)

    Yes, this is true. Though there will undoubtedly be an uneven amount of entrants, resulting in even bigger groups. Sod it, i'll be graded 2000 by the time we get another 4 group banded tounie..
