    Dr,Brain vs Misslead tournament tie-breaker results 0-1.
    This division is ready for pairing for second round. I will e-mail
    Schliemann to do the pairing and as soon as he announces it the
    second round can begin. Good Luck to all the second round players.

    Congratulations Lyn! Hard lines Johan, Lyn's a tough player isn't she!
    The games looked enjoyable though, especially the tie-breaker!

    Is the pairing based on our original rating as at the start of the
    tourney, if so couldn't the draw be done by anyone in about 10
    seconds?

    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.

    So! everyone can see that Dave has used different rules to do the
    draw for the top section and the 1400 section? Like T1000 i am not
    concerned who i play but unless you can explain why the 2 sections
    have been treated differently i am sure that everyone will draw their
    own conclusions. BTW gbnils withdrew a long time ago, he posted to
    that effect, i seem to remember it was due to work commitments.
    Good luck to bbarr if the draw had been done properly i think this
    pairing would have been the same anyway, although if ( and i am not
    suggesting it will happen) tenebr8 beats T1000 does it mean bbarr
    gets a bye in round 3 too as tenbr8 has already had one?
    yours confused although i did predict the exact pairings!

    Absolutely did not...if you look at maggoteer's web page you will see
    that he set it up exactly how I asked it it runs straight down from there.

    As for the gbgnils thing...I didn't know he was leaving untill this
    morning when I saw that post.

    And as for the next round...the bye will actually drop down to the
    winner of the misslead - Alley Crime match...cause in effect bbarr is
    actually getting a bye this round due to gbgnils leaving.

    I never said this would be perfect...I have never played in a tourney
    that was.
