    Can't we speed things up alittle. In groups where people have no chance in advancing, but the games keep going on. Let's move on to round two.

    Not such a bad idea. If someone has "clinched" a section the next round could be and should be started otherwise there is the risk of games being drawn out so the loser will minimize his rating damage. I have 2 opponents who said that EXACT thing.

    Do we know how people are going to advance in that tournament? In my bracket, I think Skipslot won all of his games, but MKeaveney and I are tied for second place with 12 points each. Does that mean that just Skipslot will advance, or will there be multiple rounds in this tournament?

    Sorry to have to tell you this, but Skipslot has won that group and will advance.

    Actually, that's OK with me, I don't know if I want an additional 16 games right now, or however many it would be. Oh well. Best of luck to all of those who are going on, assuming the next round ever happens.
