You happen to be in a very densely populated banding ( the biggest here I'd guess ) so it's always going to be an issue for you I'm afraid...if you read some of the other threads here along the same topic, you'll find your point is raised by many..you'll have to keep an keen eye out for what you want.. being in the U.K, check in in the morning, as they're usually created morning GMT, sign up without pondering it too much ( you MAY be able to withdraw later in the day but leaving it you may find the places taken..catch 22 but your call )...SOME, a minority perhaps, of those tournies I tracked a few weeks back were available for a few days but they were slightly higher banding to your own...until admin' finds a solution, that's all you can do..
Originally posted by Le Sorcier Thanks, although the solution to me would be just arrange more tournaments?
As noted by the previous poster, I was going to recommend a club but I see you've found one...is it by chance you've found THE most prolific creator of tournaments anyway...I don't think you'll struggle finding something to suit with M.U.T.I 🙂
Go to clubs and join the Reckless Players club. Although we can not run airtight banded tournaments, we do run them on an "honor" basis inside the club. Our most recent was a pairs tournament for players rated 1253.574 or less 🙂.
