    My 30 day rating finally fell below 1300 (were it will probally stay) and I was ready to join some rookie tournys and they are now all below 1250 instaed of 1300 kinda disapointing, I was hopeing to get in a toury that I would be able to compete in.

    just venting, having a bad chess day

    I know how you are feeling,maybe a tournament could be set up for ratings between 1200 and 1300.

    Hey Hoagyjr,

    That's exactly what I had been waiting for too so I sympathise

    ...mind you it's academic now, as my rating has just nudged over 1300 again.

    I posted something earlier about tournies, but I've had another idea...what about leagues (premiership 2000+, 1st div 1900-1999, 2nd div 1800-1899 etc. Perhaps maximum 12 players in a league.

    All play all in their respective leagues, with winners and runners up of each leagues going into play off matches for prmotion/relegation etc.

    what d'ya reckon?

    Warm regards,

    Mark

    boiledcod, I would be happy to see a lower to mid level tourny, I think your range is a little narrow, maybe something like 1100-1400. but I don't know, someone is always going to get left out.

    Messy, I might be interested in a leagues. I would just have to see how its set up. seems to me there was another post about them some time back.

    later,
    Scott

    it's easy just get your rating up to about 1300 then enter another tournament then get timed out of all your games and your rating soon slips down under 1250...

    I like the Midway tourneys, but groups of 8 are a little large.

    Meesy, I think that is the best idea I have heard of in a forum. As good as this site already is, that would make it 10 times better. Good idea.
