    If this tournament had been allowed to go on as it was meant, and if the guys who entered could think beyond themselves for a few minutes, there would be no problem... all the entrants would be female!

    I know of one male player, who I politely questioned his motives for entering, and stated men were directed to drop out, he stated he did not know it was a "Ladies" tournament, yet he has not resigned. I have not questioned my other opponents, and merely questioned him because his profile includes a man's picture.

    I prefer to not state his name. I would like to see if he resigns, or continues to play.

    I did the same and got the same reaction, he thought it was some sort of joke (ladies tournament with a load of guys in)

    i think there are three categories:

    1/ female
    2/ male
    3/ unsure of their gender, and consider this to be a free gender test.
