just venting, having a bad chess day
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?
