    Those numbers includes 1st round loss.

    There is a reason why masters is in 2 differnt flights, and part of it has to do with the size becaues of the Origins messing up and PUI opening up registation to all.

    With over a 500 player tournament we will not be able to post in any information like that.

    Got to get back to work, post after round 2 starts

    945 in 2 flights, means 9 rounds a flight.
    It's going to be hard, because the tiebreakers will be so important for all 7-2's. (to get into that final t32)


    If I understand the rules correct, top16 of both flights will go into the sunday t32 (but forgive me if I am wrong).

    Each flight will have it's own Top32 so really the masters will have a Top64 by doing it this way. Then the winners from Top32 of each flight will make up the Top32 for Sunday's final tournament. Don't worry we have it all worked out. k, back to work.

    NICE
    I hoped for that, with that kind of attendance they deserve this.

    Just one question, 9 swiss rounds for masters in each flight??

    Yes, at the start of the tournaments each flight has the same number of players. Now it will change as players drop through out the tournament.

    I mean - the numbers of players stayed in the tournament towards to end of swiss which means minus those who dropped....

    And will you list undefeated players after round 5?

    I will try to give you the final number of players at the end of swiss, but you might have to remind me at the end of the tournament.

    As for undefeated players I will not be able to post undefeated players since Nationals is being run on 4 different computers. Plus there is not the time between rounds and such to do that with this size of tournament. Sorry.
