    how come there are so few tournaments that have a rating band? currently there are so many open to all - do i just miss them? though i am on every day and check

    I was wondering the same thing. I hate entering tournaments loaded with much better players and then getting spanked.

    I'll try to rectify this.

    If you really want one format specifically, send feedback, and we will get them up.

    Also, I really appreciated some recent tournaments with a band between 1700 and 1950. I think there are a lot of us around 1800-1900 players that have real trouble competing with 2000+ players. In particular it is nice to have just normal duels and triplets, without needing to learn a specific opening and without requiring too many added games at once.

    Has anyone sent feedback? I did. If you want more small, banded tournaments, please do as Russ asked. I miss banded duets and threesomes.....
