    This tournament is never gonna end. This is ridiculous...
    E.g. take a look in group 5. Two players in that group haven't finished a single game. And in the game between the two of them only eleven moves have been played...
    But okay, those are the rules, so you can't call it ridiculous. It's only gonna be annoying for those players who have finished all of their games soon (like me). We will have to wait a long time for the start of the second round.
