Question AZ members tournament..? - 08-09-2019, 05:16 PM

Anybody ever pondered the idea of a members event? You could go by Fargo ratings and have a cut-off date by which they'd have to be a member. Just curious if this has ever been a topic. Putting faces to AZ names could be funny/enlightening and possibly even combative. Might need an octagon and have cage matches too.

Why go by fargo ratings? Having a handicap tournament?

There is a wide variance of skill levels on here. IMO Fargo would be the way to do it. The turnout could be pretty big if time/location was good.

Mezz West Tour uses Fargo ratings for it tournaments and is very successful drawing over 100 players most of the time.

Pros go to 9, semi pros go to 8, then someone like me (636) goes to 7, and there is a lower level that goes to 6.

Amateur (Fargo Rating -551) - Race to 6
Veteran (Fargo Rating 551+) - Race to 7
Semi Pro (Fargo Rating 651+) - Race to 8
Professional (Fargo Rating 720+) - Race to 9

A 6 or 7 does not have much chance of beating a pro, but most of the players in the tournaments go to 6 or 7, and with the large number of players you have a good chance of playing most of your matches with someone around your own speed.

Thanks JH. Good info.

Race to 1 Round Robin no handicaps. Everyone plays a lot.
