Originally posted by Dutch Defense ain't running too well, who ever came up with this should be pretty embarassed since not too many 1800+ players join tournaments. It's been 6 entrants for the last few days or so. 😵
I'm convinced that to be that good, you generally have to moderate your game load way lower than most subscribers. Between this and the fact that there are only 512 1800+ players (and how many of those are subscribers?) you will have trouble filling such tournaments.
By comparison there are 1351 players between 1600-1800. Of course tournament ratings will up both these numbers slightly, but it's clear that there are twice as many in the 1600-1799 band as in the 1800+.
