If you really want to do well in a banded tournament, do it like this guy:User 175603
Last fall his rating was high enough he was in a 1600-1799. Tournament 878
Then you let yourself be t/o'd in dozens or hundreds of games until your rating is in the toilet.
Then you start joining the lower banded tournaments and thrash your opponents. Fun, eh?
This is the best one:
When I questioned him about his reasons for joining this last tournament, the 0-1249 banded, he told me: "it is my first time, i did not know about it, thanks for telling me. next time i wont 🙂"
Pretty good chess player, but an awful memory!
