    I love them! Please Russ, let's have more soon... I finally have a decent chance of actually advancing to the second round, and my game load doesn't go up noticeably...
    I think it's one of the best ideas in the recent past!
    Yay for rhp

    I once advanced in a 'normal' tournament with much higher rated players. And imaging I have not beaten a player with a rating above 1504 (although I have beaten Zebbot, currently rated 1800+, but not at the time I was playing him months ago).

    You just need a bit of luck (or alot, sometimes) and a normal level of play to start advancing to next rounds once every while. My first tries in the banded tournaments were all failures and suddenly I started to advance into next rounds all of a sudden. Maybe that will happen to you to from now on!

    I am experiencing advancing to the third round is much, much harder...

    yes, today's my lucky day... I advanced in 2 tourneys! The second one was Mini banded I 1100-1149... and my whole group advanced
    Would be nice if the 2nd round started soon (*hint hint Russ* )
    Today's my day... too bad it's half past 10 in the evening and I haven't done any homework yet... ah well
