    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
    different category.
    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.
