Is there anyway in which round 2 in tournaments can commence when it is clear who will qualify for second round even though there are still games outstanding in round 1 that have no bearing in who qualifies.
I like many others, have been waiting for round 2 to start in a number of banded tournaments where the qualifiers are already decided and yet round 2 is delayed while we wait for other games to complete
:'(. I realise that for some it is a matter of honour, standing and ratings to complete their games, but can this not be done whilst round 2 commences??
Would appreciate comments and views......
