    Your group's already playing - you need to get out of bed earlier ....

    If you're desperate, try club tournaments. Although there's a banding problem there. Hopefully SOMEDAY that will get fixed.

    The Great Escape Club Club 229 are looking for new members for banded tournaments.

    If a 1700 enters a banded 12-1500 tourny, the only measure is to boot the tournament ( after the initial courtesy 'please vacate' message ) literally shut it down..and each time 'they' do this, you do the same. The club will give the guy a piece of their mind and EVENTUALLY they disappear. I always find it strange the way these guys profess ignorance to 'Eglnish' when you message them suggesting they withdraw..after the ignorance stage, they then just don't open their mail..there's more than one way to skin a cat ( fish ) !!

    Alternatively boot the player after he does this the 2nd time.
