    I think it would be a good idea to have more tournaments with fewer players. You could have a maximum of 8 players and have various tourneys for different abilities and one tourney for all abilities.

    e.g.
    600-1000
    1000-1200
    1200-1400
    1400-1600 etc. etc.

    and 600-2300

    These tournaments would be straight one game knockout, with random white/black selection for each player in each round.

    When each tournament was full (which would be quite quick in the case of 8 players) a new tournament with the same rating would be posted for entries.

    What do you think???

    Very similar to the Alpha Banded 3x3 Tournaments (Nos 182-190) which had 9 entrants apiece. They began in early May and are still in progress.

    Not a bad idea, but if there are too few entrants in a tournament its value diminishes somewhat.
