by paying 30 euros entry fee a tournament should be created with 11 players and 2 prizes,ficgs could take a % and earn money

Hello Alexis,

Yes, it would be very easy to create such tournaments. We had no players with Epoints enough a few years ago for this. Maybe it is time now.

Who would enter such a waiting list among these possibilities?

1. Rated 7 players single round robin tournament, no rating range, 20 epoints entry fee
2. Unrated 7 players single round robin tournament, no rating range, 20 epoints entry fee
3. Rated 5 players double round robin tournament, no rating range, 30 epoints entry fee
4. Unrated 5 players double round robin tournament, no rating range, 30 epoints entry fee

Both rated & unrated options have inconvenients IMO... Any better idea? The prize would be about 96 to 100% entry fees.

(by the way, this may partly solve the problem of the other discussion about double round robin tournaments)

Yes I also think, if such tournaments are held then they should be rated in my opinion. So 1 or 3 ....if not then I prefer option 4 to option 2

Very good idea, Thibault. This would certainly create more interest in the tournaments. I prefer one and two but would accept three and four.

Hello Michael,

This concept has now evolved into the standard open tournament and has been running for a few months.

I would definitely pay if it was a strong tournament.

Peter W. Anderson    (2012-08-26 14:07:57)

Any of these as long as they are rapid speed. My preferance would be for 1 or 3.

This would be an interesting development. Would we get some of the 2400+ players playing at rapid speed I wonder?

Would be? This tournament is already offered. It is called STANDARD OPEN!!!!!
