Favorite tournament type poll (daily)

LucidDreams999

Hi everyone I am wondering what everyone's favorite type of daily tournament is so, I decided to take a poll.

If you would please put: what time control, rating range, rated or not, number of players per round, how many advance, and how many consecutive games.

In 10 days (5/26/2021) i will look at the results and them make a daily tournament with the most popular type

Have fun,

Lucid

Cheers, Lucid!

I want to, but most people prefer high rating to low one and some with experience enough... Anyway: 

Rapid, 1 hour, between 2 players; rating 500-800. Afternoons o weekends.

1 day, rating range of your choice, rated, all games of round start at same time, no vacation

important: 2 advances ( not 1 ) out of group of 4 to 8

no tie break

the goal is to avoid very slow players from blocking the tournament by making them timeout.

in general slow players are low rated too.

 

why 2 advances ?

it can happen that 2 potential tournament winners are together in same group

More respect and empathy and less snobbery. 

I hope that this type of offensive comments will not be allowed in the future by the person responsible for the forum. 

Farewell.

My favourite are 5/5 blitz. I have significantly better results with 5/5 than 3/3, since, being in my sixties, the clock rate of my brain's CPU is not as fast as it once was, even though my internal "analysis algorithms" are still quite good! Unfortunately 2-hour 5/5 sessions are not regularly offered during the day...
