    Which of these (Round 2) sections is not like the others?

    Tournament 1656


    Not complaining, just amusingly unusual.

    Yeah, it has happened to me a few times, including this one!

    Some of them (especially duels) with you, najdorfslayer.

    I was in one tournament where someone rated 1000 got thrown in a group with three 2000+ players. You had to feel a bit sorry for them!

    LOL you just got to take it all in stride, my last four tournaments in duels where new rounds have started have placed three times against Maris, once against Korch...so its not been the greatest battle so far, 4/6 are losses already to maris, and the other four between the two are still on the go. Not to mention the opponent before that was Blanca, who is not an easier opponent on any end...

    It happens all the time, but usually not in the first round. I have to get myself deep into the later rounds of the tournament before I run into the likes of DawgHaus, sven1000, mtthw, and IYTIA and the like. 😉

    Although currently Cludi and maris are the ones who usually knock me out the most regularly, early or late.

    Well I think it will be 3 points each in the Najdorf touney I don't like my position as Black very much 🙁

    What happens there do we both go through or neither of us or do we playoff???

    The section's over now. The results were close and quite unpredictable.

    Nicely done, DawgHaus! And a very even group result in the end.
