    It appears to be the case that three players from the group 24 is
    going to have 12 points and then all three are going to the next
    round in the tournament 100 to 1!
    Would that mean that all players who receive at least 12 pints should
    go to the next round?
    It did appear ...[text shortened]... yers who have the same amount of points!

    Sincerely,

    It did appear that the groups with lower numbers were having much
    tougher competion than the ones with the higher numbers!
    For example the group one had the players with the following
    rankings: 1, 26, 51, and 76
    compare this with the group 25:
    rankings: 25, 50, 75, and 100
    In my opinion, the ten strongest players are in the groups 1-10,
    therefore, it would be almost impossible for an less skilled player to
    win the group than it would be for the groups with less excellent
    players like me!
    I believe that the group winners should go to the next round, but so
    should do those players who have the same amount of points!

    Harri,

    I do not agree.
    Each group stands for his own. Only the winner(s) go(es) through. There's nothing wrong with that.
    If you want that all members of the group have a reasonable chance of going to the next round, I suggest that there wille be tournaments open for lets say 1700-up, 1500-1700, 1300-1500 etcetera. That certainly would be interesting.
    The way the tournaments are now have a great advantage! Not so good players have the chance to compete against topplayers what they might not have outside tournament play
