I was just surprised to see 2 banned players right at the start of the tourny, nothing more..
The only reason for me to organize Private Tournaments is because I like Tournaments with specific "themes"..
Amsterdamn Clan Threesomes
The 1st Private Tournament of Amsterdamn Clan
Tournament with 18 players only from the Amsterdamn Clan, groups of 3. Idea behind it seems obvious.
Amsterdamn Turbo Duel - March 2008
Most Active Players in Turbo Mode
I invited just players who were on page 1 of the "Most Active Players of the Month", at that specific time. Turbo Mode: 1 day timeout, NO timebank: I wanted the most-frequent-movers in 1 tourny, to be a witness of the fastest tourny ever.
Amsterdamn High Quality Duels
The highest rated players in Duel
I only invited the 2050+ rated players. Reason is that I only saw tournaments where you have 1700+ / 1800+ for example, and most of the time the 2050+ rated player in that tourny wins.. Just wanted to see a tournament of only 2050+ players, also to make it more of a challenge for these players themselves, as I believe that this has not been done for them before. And you can see, with a little effort you have 24 of them filling the tourny..
Will think of other "themes" to create a next Private Tournament.. hope it's being appreciated..
Good luck to all.. Patrick
