In order to give more chance to the less experienced player, and to give these tourneys more chance to run, we have made changes to our rating restricted tourneys, and decided to only run 2 at any one time.
Our systems team have made changes to the ratings required to play in our Intermediate and Masters tourneys. While Beginners remains the same, (under 1,500 or less than 51% win), Intermediate is now 2,999 and under, with Masters 3,000 and over.
In most Leagues, Intermediate and Masters tourneys will be offered together. In Leagues where ratings aren't quite high enough to merit this, then Beginner tourneys will be offered, alongside a regular tourney.
Please feel free to post any feedback on the success or popularity of these tourneys.
