Suggestion for the main tournament...

Postby jeanphi » 18 Mar 2009, 07:42

I know originally we have only one final table.... (and I won't be part of it because of very mean players that ttacked me... snifffffffffff) Can we also create tables for ranks 8-14, 15-21, 22- - last..... Just an idea.. for fun... I'd love to have the chance to be be the best of the last....

I would also volunteer for a bit more self-inflicted humiliation :D

This is a great way to cap off the tourny, and everyone gets a 5th game as well. If same does not want to organize it I can do so so everyone gets to play.

I'm definitely in. It will help me feel better about myself, since I joined the tourney late, and didn't do so hot. :(

I'm happy to organise it again. As someone who has ZERO points up until now I might be able to salvage some pride. Or not.

I already know I am the last of the worst.. but did not someone said "the last will be first"? oh yeaaaaaaa that was the Chicago Cubs' president I think (this joke will only be understood in the US: sorry)

I just think the idea of all playing a 5th game would be fun ;) I don't know about you all, but personally I really enjoyed all the games with that tournament with great players (who all like to kill me for some reason but that's ok) and great attitude... ABSOLUT TOP MENTION FOR FUN: The swiss observer!!! :P
