    Does the tournament notice really mean to say "Bronstein" mode as opposed to "Fischer" mode?

    Trialling something different in both format and time control. Also looking for a way around the real long 4 round a day weekenders, which start at 9:30am and don't finish till 7:30pm.

    Thumbs up Hope for a big turnup

    What will you do with unrated entries, at the bottom or approximate their rating. Also, what would happen if the [Alex] situation occurs again (Qld reserves)

    I really hope you get a big turnup as the structure has some pluses.

    Good points

    - No huge mismatches that occur in swiss
    - even distribution in prizemoney
    - small entry fee for 9 games

    ?????

    - sickness/withdrawals
    - no byes
    - top end may not be motivated to play

    How can this possibly be a GP event if the field is broken up into groups of 10 player round robins.
    The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.

    This will be an interesting matter!!!!

    Maybe each division will be considered a separate tournament (hope they paid (divisions x $100) gp fee.

    Interesting what Brian does about this.

    In theory it is, but it makes the gp concept a joke

    In theory it isnt because the ACF would not approve it.
