    Looking at my home page I have 10 tournaments available to me all of which are unbanded.

    I know I will never improve if I dont play better players than me, but would also like a fighting chance to actually win one of these things.

    I ask if there could be more BANDED tournaments please. As you know the current banded tournaments fill up very quickly, this must surely prove how popular they are???

    Regards

    This is very true, but then you also get the same people entering in the same tournaments. EG. if there is a banded tournament, sometimes Russ does a I, II, III, IV etc etc. The same players enter all these tournaments.

    I think this entry should be looked at.

    Why shouldn't the same player enter loads of tournaments?

    OK, if this is your answer to entering all the banded tournaments then why isnt the group sizes increased instead of limiting them to 64 or whatever they are set at??

    You cant enter the same tournament twice therefore giving others a chance to apply.
