It looks like Jkr_1993 only completed 3 boards.

I responded to this challenge again completing 10 boards ignoring that Jkr had played 3 boards against my earlier 10. I thought this would be easier than arguing as I have nothing to play for.

Will be finishing the group stage then regardless, adjusting any remaining scores as fairly as possible.
Feel free to send me a friend challenge of any format as often as you like. I'll always accept :)

Thanks.


We have so many people who just clicked "YES" to join the tournament - it was a big mistake (at least imo) to use a poll for registration and also to make 5 groups of 11!

I have been done for 10-11 days right now, and I completely agree with you on the fact that it goes very slow. However, I think we are doing a great job for the given the set of players and the tournament structure. Believe me, I literally contacted people personally in BBO and made them complete their matches one by one, because the point adjustment stuff will be ugly and potentially very unfair for some.

Anyway, I think Frank is planning to just help next time, and I am going to take control. I have a few radical changes in my mind, the current pace is so slow for some of us, it is not the best thing to complete each tournament in 5-6 weeks. But for some others, we go too fast. So I offer the following:

FAST EVENT - CHALLENGE CUP (Will be invitational, you may get in based on your earlier play or by reference of those players who are in + earlier slow players will not get in for sure): For people who can follow the forum as frequent as every 48 hours, complete the group stage in 3-4 days maximum and can finish 64 boards KO in 2-3 days (on average). We potentially wrap up every event in 2-2.5 weeks.

REGULAR EVENT - CHALLENGE LEAGUE (Open): Two times 16 boards per week, possibly a long Swiss/Danish format (yes, we announce two matches at a single time except last few weeks) or even a Round-Robin.

I will get some feedback when current tournament reaches to Quarter final stage.

Please not. People cannot even follow this one easily, another one will take forever to deal with.
