I have been thinking this for a while. Tourney wins used to be pretty hard to come by, where a player rated 1300 or so had to really work hard at his game to eventually win a tournament, even a banded one. Now that there's one every other week, all they gotta do is make sure they gain entry into each one and hope for the best, knowing they'll eventually squeeze through and win one. I guess it's okay though, everyone who gives their money to this site deserves at least one tourney win in their time here.
If the boys in my group at 1225-1249 would finish their games, I'd know if I go to round 2. It's still possible, but not likely. I was counting on a win in my last game against scubagold to really make things hard for the rest. and I blundered. Alas, I keep working at it.
