    Actually, prize money was awarded to the rating groups and trophies to the age groups.

    After all he was on the ACF Council when it was decided to add them to the list of official ACF titles.
    Lee was told he could run the tournaments however he pleased and he ran them with rating group prizes. Because I had bought the trophies for the age titles, these trophies were then awarded at prize giving, so titles were in fact awarded. In some cases kids who won titles did actually get money in many cases they did not. It was all very bizarre.

    Interesting, considering who lobbied for and purchased the trophies.

    "Oops, sorry this trophy seems to say U16 instead of U1600."

    I assume Lee was told by an organiser and not Charles Z who I know would have known that its done based on age group not rating.

    Actually I do believe it was Charles. It certainly wasnt me as I was unaware of how the lightning was run until after the tournament was run.

    During the rapid, I had to inform Lee that progressive is the first tiebreak method used.

    Actually I think Charles was guilty of some Machiavellian strategies in this....

    I did actually consider that but assumed otherwise.
    Also I'm not convinced Machiavellian strategies are the most effective.
