    I thought this needed a more prominent place in a thread, not in the middle of it, so once more:
    Here are all 38 groups:
    The groups have been sorted after the strongest player in each group.

    I can't understand this tournament.

    Is it a random pairing? or is it by rating or ranking?

    If it's by rating or ranking, why is there groups with players like David Tebb (2269, 3rd) and meman (2156, 23rd), or Feivel (2179, 16th) and Northern Lad (2170, 17th), or worst ThePO (2244, 4th), In His Name (2182, 15th) and BlackBuck (2093, 34th)?

    I just can't understand...

    random pairing

    Thanks... But if all the top players would be paired at the same group? What happens? A easy run to the survivor? Just it? It seems to be unfair for me?

    quite possibly unfair, but that is the nature of random.

    I agree for a so called championship it is unfair. I look at some of the groups and though Im a bit happy some of the top competition will be bumped off in the first round it's just not fair having three 2000+ players in the same group while in my group I'm 2100+ and not a signle other player is rated above 1400. Would have been nice to have had atlest a couple players over 1700.

    Thanks for your strong support... Maybe it could be different on next championship...

    hey nick, thanks for compiling the names for all of the groups.
    as for me, alas i was crushed by baca, the number one guy in my group. boo-hoo, no round 2 for me.

    so.. got bored at work today

    http://www.hockeyinfo.netfirms.com/chess.xls

    this is the table in excel XP format (click open when you go to the URL.. but you will need excel)

    No game results yet.. will start to compile them as I go, and update the file as often as I can..

    As people complete games for the 2005 championship, if someone can send results, I can update the table.. this way I won't have to keep going over the ones that aren't finished every week.

    Oups, thats some mistake
    It looks like its the top list that is correct, but my credibility has just plummet here, so... but both Snakeye and Chess Slayer play in that group so it must be the top list.
    But that means that there are only 37 groups, is that right?

    This is the right one:
