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+.
