Why cannot the games be organized in a chart so everybody could
see their potential opponents in the whole tournament?
Secondly, when the players who are supposed to meet each other,
could start when they have won their games and not to wait until
everybody have finished their games!
The games could follow the same plan like the college tournament in
the basketball championship.
The different player levels could be easily be put in the same block so
for example, the 1400 level winner plays someone else from a
Use Excel spread sheet or something similar to create the graph.
A better plan would be to make a tournament where the players
ranking determines the position in the chart. Put all the players with
ODD ranking on one side and the EVEN ranking on the other side. Let
say 120 players signs up, then eight players would have a bye in the
first round and nobody after that. just split the players in two groups
with 60 each! A couple of the earlier rounds could still be organized
based on the rankings in order to make the games more meaningful.
