    how about a world cup t'ment where each continent submits a player
    from 2000+ 1800 - 1900 1700 - 1800 etc but can only submit 1 player for each rating....ratings must be judged over 6 months..

    except England, Germany and Holland who can enter an entire team
    and the teams below
    Rest of Europe
    North America
    South America
    Asia
    Australasia


    what does everyone else think????????

    FF
    each player would play against the same rated player from each team

    "Australasia"? 😕 And what happened to Africa?

    Edit: And there aren't that many players from Germany on this site. I believe there are more people from Canada, South Africa or Ireland, just to take some examples.

    I think he meaned Oceania (if that is the correct phrase in English); Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and some other islands I really don't know...

    Indonesia is in Asia! Australasia and Oceania are pretty much interchangeable, and refer to Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific nations.

    I would think it would be really hard to pick just one person from each contienent. Maybe have a qualifying tourney where the top 4 finishers go into the main tourney perhaps?
