    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.

    Not in the first round, it seems.
