    Championship hopefulls, and potential winners. The highest rated player in the tournament is Nicohuyboom, rated 2224. The top 3 scariest opponents are Quirine (winner of the 2005), Cludi, and BlackBuck. I will try to update this often so we can see who the top players are from each country....The country right now that lacks the most in firepower is Canada. 🙁

    As I am no longer the top-rated player from the USA, I have adjusted my forum title accordingly.

    Nothing wrong with third best American, just makes you an underdog, and with your talent, that could get you somewhere...

    I have played 5 of the players rated above me (Nicohuyboom, Cludi, BlackBuck, Gatecrasher and Quirine) and my combined record against them is 4W, 18L, 13D. Unless they all meet with "accidents", I would say I'll be happy making it into the second round like I did last year.

    TRAINS44 has joined the tournament, the very strong American player is rated 1951!! a strong threat for a second round appearance.

    No, there are 6 other New Zealanders besides you in the tourney. You're the #1 seed amongst them though.

    there are many underrated players including:

    Thecyl, Quirine, DoJoCleaning, wonderboy75, sastorey, cosmicknight, sealion, etc

    and there are unknown quantities such as The Running Man, Yardman, GOGITOTX, and Maloo. (do you remember "mistsplicer" last year? i hope mistsplicer joins again.)

    a dangerous bunch.
