    hey all, I've been a member for a while, but I'm just getting back into the swing after being hospitalized twice and almost dying.  Many apologies if I was one of the ones "abusing vacation". Wasn't near the web.  I was noticing however that there are tons of people in this tourney that are WELL over 1200 rating... Now that I'm "back" I want to start hosting tournaments again but I had a similar problem... Patzer, based on your tourney notes, all over/underrated players were supposed to be moved... are all the high rateds people who's scores have jumped since tourney start? Some by almost 1000? Not trying to whine here...and maybe I'm just looking at the standings wrong... a little help here???.

    My chess is terrible enough... at least I can understand the website maybe? Thanks in advance to the TD or anyone else who wants to chime in....playing chess since I was 6...(30 yrs) and here since oct of 2010...STILL HORRIBLE!~! lol

    good luck and good gaming to all!
