watsu (and others),

Just to be clear, I'm entered in zoey's tourney to have fun *and* to try to scalp as many very strong players as possible, as P2 *or* P1. As such I want to play the toughest players possible. Bring it on.

In Brf's tourney on the other hand, while I wanted to have fun, and did indeed have fun, my goal was to advance from round one, which I did, and also to advance from round two, which looks mathematically impossible now that I lost to Brf in a set. Even before I lost that set I think I was likely going to tie for first on points but lose on S-B points, a rare sighting at BK I think.

Anyway, after rereading my definitions of the rating scale at BK, I stand by those comments. I think it is an excellent description, with some players being underrated (e.g. zoey) and others overrated (e.g. me) by the BK system, at the moment anyways.

roster update;

watsu is being removed to allow his alt to join - water dancer. this way he will be in with an established rating.
this is being done at watsus request.

also, after more thought, i have decided to just go ahead and give this Pentak player a chance. i would like to be surprised that we had a new master hiding under our noses. time will tell.

i will update the line up post when i get a chance.

Update - the new line up prediction
keep in mind this will change again. there are some players who will finish rated games soon and seeded positions will flip flop around a little. one example is waterdancer will go up one slot in seeding order soon.

here are some players you should invite if you haven't already:

Lanser -- "Super Pente" winner
Karol G -- one of the top polish players
Spavacz -- surprised to see he's not on the list
Gaylen -- he always does well in TB tourneys
Yoss -- don't know if he still plays regularly

It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

Yeah, me two Rich (among other names, of course). I know that we're unlikely to get very many- if any- of them in, though.

I don't want to play non tournament rules games. If you take one of my unrated invites, play tourney

I've been trying to locate Gary Barnes for years.

I just looked over that list - that's a strong group, one that perhaps could take on the 18 or so players already in the tournament

Has anyone heard from Virag recently?

And whatever happened to Dmitri krasnonosov? Or Oleg Stepanov?

In World Cup Soccer terms, it looks like group 1 is the group of death. Good luck to everyone, in all three groups.

P.S. Anyone want to sell me 4 BKR's before Tuesday? (Just kidding for those readers who take things too literally). waterdancer is a sandbagger in group 3, and I am glad I don't have to play him after the beating I took (game scores unavailable ha ha) the last set we played together. That said, until a few minutes ago I had thought I was in group 3. This shall be interesting....
