How about another tournament for us sub-1K plebs?
Perhaps it could become a regular item?
If the number of entries is low, why not just keep it to 4 groups of 4?
I love playing in tournaments, but having to face players rated 1500+ in open tourneys is a bit daunting.
i agree strongly, i enjoy playing against ppl rated a bit higher than me cos u can go wild n try crazy plans with nothing to lose, but it wd b very nice to play in tournaments where i have a chance of doing well
