    The band is soo big on the upper one . Wouldn't stand a chance so I'll pass on this one.

    Come on, I enter 'normal' tournaments too without any chance of advancing (although I once advanced in one and got in a group the next round with only 1900+ players).

    How come two players with a provisional rating are able to join a rating controlled tournament? I thought that was not possible. Looks like at least one of them is most likely a 1500+ player to be... Sigh...

    The game's the thing, Aiko ! But you know that....

    If only all of life was ultimately as harmless as this little Backpack Tournament!

    As the one00 pointed out, btw, In Vino Veritas still has openings for two new members

    One spot in the Corkscrew - 30 spots in the Backpack... :'(

    And it's such a nice Backpack, too - I tested it and it holds 7 bottles of wine quite comfortably.

    Without breaking too many hearts, I would like to point out that I need a corkscrew and will therefore win one, regardless of whether any of you think that you actually stand a chance.

    Yes, I do to but I already have to many games going and I don't need more against players 200 points higher than me. Maybe next time.

    Good luck to all!

    Not in the first round, it seems.
