New tournament

Dear Chessfriends, I have an idea for a new tournament. Swiss System: 20 players, 12 rounds 2 games at saturday, 2 games at sunday over three weeks. What is your opinion to my proposal? Greetings from Munich Michael

Hello Michael, more rounds probably means less players and less tournaments (freestyle cups), it is a quite hard format, also for the organizer :)

By the way, why 20 players ? An advantage of swiss system is it doesn't depend on the number of participants.

20 (16) players to avoid that every player has to play against the other

Ok, anyway 30 or 50 would be better :) .. A problem with such a 12 rounds tournament is to be sure to find enough players.
