Congratulations to Pepsi for his picket fence :clap:

Also to all the players for their co-operation with the DOP who warned them that making him get up off his seat would result in a forfeit. It only happened three time each player was only given a warning :uhoh:

Due to the good turn out a 2nd prize in each rating division was added.

I hopped so and had arrangements made even for a 12h notice! However, as I explained to Trent on a previous posting here, all I could do was to get Monday off but not Sunday! :( I will come to Sydney soon though! Missing you all!

so how will this tournament be rated, having used the normal ACF ratings and all that?

bergil

so how will this tournament be rated, having used the normal ACF ratings and all that?It will be rapid rated. As I said at the tournament the original DOP was sick and couldn't make it but the back up laptop didn't have the rapid master list on it so we had to use the standard ratings for seeding and prizes.

An added second rating prize in each division would have compensated anyone who may have been disadvantaged but there was no real alternative and nobody wanted to withdraw.
