    Dave, gbgnils hasn't made a move since the start of August and has
    no current games underway.

    How were the pairings chosen? John said in a post that they were done
    on the basis of ratings. So in the top section the 4 players left in had
    ratings of :-

    Sintubin 1906
    Schliemann 1828
    Knightmare_NJ 1788
    Wwarrior 1734

    giving the pairings:-

    Sintubin (1) vs Wwarrior (4)
    Schliemann (2) vs Knightmare_NJ (3)

    In the 1400s section the players left in are:-

    tenebr8 1494
    T1000 1467
    Gbgnils 1435
    Bbarr 1430
    Misslead 1412
    Alley Crime 1401

    and the pairings are
    tenebr8 (1) vs T1000 (2)
    gbgnils (3) vs Bbarr (4)
    Misslead (5) vs Alley Crime (6)

    and a different method appears to have been used. I don't mind who
    I play, am glad to have just scraped past my first match (and would in
    fact love to play against The Dark Squire himself!) but should there
    perhaps be consistency? How were the pairings chosen?

    Mark are you referring to this post? "Re: Baker Invitational
    Tournament-1400 Division

    Tony, Yes it is based on original rating. Remember, Most of us here at
    Red Hot Pawn have jobs. Playing chess is what we do for enjoyment.
    Orchestrating a Tournament is what we like to do. Please give Dave
    time to do the pairing. I know he was at work today.

    Ps: It is Dave's tournament. I'm sure he is not dragging his feet on
    this. He reserved the pairing for himself because he knows the rules
    better than myself. "

    Look closely at my last sentence. gbgnils may not have made a move
    since august, but he has not resigned fromthe tournament and we
    have to assume he is still in it. If he does not move in timeout time
    he will lose by TO.

    bbarr vs. gbgnils has begun, the game #'s are 118752 & 118751.
    Apparently he hasn't moved in quite some time. Has anyone here
    spoken with him recently?

    Game numbers noted. I'll see if I have gbgnils e-mail at home. If I
    do i will send him e-mail and let his know round two has started and
    he has 7 days to make his first move. Send him e-mail also from the
    e-mail opponent option in your game.

    Would it be ok,if Alley and I agreed two draws and went to the decider.

    Although unethical I cannot stop you from doing that.

    Dave unethical is too strong a word to use here.

    Pre arranged draws are a very serious infraction of the rules in any
    FIDE or USCF tourney and the people would be disqualified.

    I was just letting you know is unethical.
