Wednesday 5/27/09 at 7 PM, 5 rounds in three sections
This round was like round 1 of the Markoswki, it featured large rating point differentials. Despite the mismatches (slaughter of the lambs?) there were 2 upset wins in the Fast Section and 1 in the Slow. Some players detest playing someone much higher rated, but others love it. To me it is a low risk learning opportunity. Even if you get beat badly, you are not going to lose many rating points, maybe two or three, and you can pick up some pointers from the higher rated player. I saw lots of players going over the games afterwards, and maybe some new friendships were made. Also this round gave players a chance to get used to the different time controls without too much stress...
