    Yeah great! (Too bad that I just had a higher rating the last 30 days) πŸ˜‰
    But most of the time the mini-tournies are a boost to the rating, because now you have a real opportunity vs "just meat" in the "big" tournies.

    Thanks!πŸ˜€

    Fred have you been preparing for these tournies by massaging your rating?

    You are only cheating yourself you know!

    i loveeeeee the mini banded tourneys...

    but i also had the problem of just attaining my highest rating ever on this site, and so i had to enter a tournament with players that are probably better than me...
    well right now it looks like i'll have a fighting chance since i am currently the highest rated one in the list...

    but i was thinking, how great would it be if your average rating over the last 30 days was used to enter the tournaments, instead of your highest rating...... might make for a more even tourney competition... even though it would probably start some other problem.

    just thought i would throw it out there and see if anyone agreed

    We are even in oud matches in the past, but we do have some players in our group rated 1500 once...

    Good idea, the average of the last 30 days.

    My thanks as well Russ. 😡

    Ditto...the banded tourneys give you a chance to play fair games against people roughly your own skill level, and a possibility to up the number of moves a month, making MAP a even harder competition.

    Three cheers for Russ!

    Hi Russ, just to let you know that you are doing a very good job of introducing the mini bands tournaments. In this way no can complain that they have no chances of winning.

    Keep it up and I am looking forward to one very soon.

    Regards,
    CliffπŸ™‚
