    You know sometimes random grouping kicks you in the teeth. I get the 5 man group with Breslaw (2130) and Jira (2020). Group 2 has Ironman31 plus schakuhr and ChessSlayer (2060 and 2010). Group 3 has Redmike (1770) as the top seed. Hell only one player in my group isn't higher than that.

    Oh well. Guess that's what random means.

    (No offense to Redmike or any other players in the tournament intended. Post is in jest)

    EDIT: Thanks for starting it Russ.

    This is the 3rd time I've run into IronMan31 in the 2nd round.

    Well, least you didn't run into him in the first round. Besides the learning experience should more than be enough to make up for a few lost points

    Hi Russ would appreciate a start on round 2 of Upsilon Banded 1200-1300 - lots of bods through by the look of things - will be an interesting second round...Thanks 😀

    Hmm, I don't mind it being on hold for another two months though. Am busy with my graduation project, cannot use the distraction but want to do my best in the tournaments... Oh well, I am alone in this one probably. I'll set my other games aside...
