|Dec-29-04|| ||fasting: Nice link. - Handicap time, a funny way to run tournaments. Of course it gives better chances to lower rated players! Suddently they can win big tournaments and beat the strong GMs.
All though I don't think it is that fair for the game; that because you are higher rated you'll get less time. |
