This is great Garvin, hopefully the kids sporting schedules will allow me to play.

I really like the idea of the prize for best tournament performance above current rating - even if your not in contention for a rating group prize, everyone has someone to shoot for.

This is great Garvin, hopefully the kids sporting schedules will allow me to play.You have five months to arrange ;) You can also take a half point bye for round one if that helps too.


I really like the idea of the prize for best tournament performance above current rating - even if your not in contention for a rating group prize, everyone has someone to shoot for.It is highly likely that someone is performing well above rating will also be in contention for a rating prize, but with this idea it gives a chance to win a prize to someone who has landed at the bottom of a rating group.

Also, the tournament performance prize is open to all players, so the top seed could even win it.

At the recently completed BCC Rapid Champs, Michael D'arcy would have won the TPR prize as he performed roughly 250 points above his rating.
