Polytechnic Quickplay April 2015 - David Potts - 26-05-2015

Why has the results from the Spring Polytechnic Quickplay not been included in the 2014-2015 Grand Prix?


Re: Polytechnic Quickplay April 2015 - Douglas Bryson - 26-05-2015

Thanks for note.

The event wasn't tagged correctly in the program - will be adjusted for tomorrow's update and should appear in GP.

Why aren't 2150+ players eligible for the Grand Prix?


Re: Polytechnic Quickplay April 2015 - Douglas Bryson - 26-05-2015

The original logic was the 2150+ level would be the players taking the place prizes in Opens. As mentioned elsewhere a lot of forced participants in Opens have almost zero chance of winning the event - so the GP was meant to provide at least partial compensation.

When the GP started there was also a UK wide GP with significant prizes in which Scots and some Scottish tournaments were included.

I know how that happened....


Re: Polytechnic Quickplay April 2015 - Alan Tate - 26-05-2015

Surely getting to play stronger players is ample compensation. I realise the sponsors might not be into it but if that or something similar were possible it would provide an incentive for more players in the top 30 to enter tournaments.

While we're on the subject of the Grand Prix, how can the Under-14 Commonwealth Championship be a qualifying event for the adult Grand Prix?

Edit: I have just read the rules! There is a separate prize in each section for juniors.
