When you say major do you mean the people in 3rd and 4th place. I am not sure I understand semi rounds now. Before you last post I understood that the leaders would only play against each other twice. Once in the first four rounds and once in the finals. So, if the majors are just the thrid and fourth person then it seems to be a good setup. What about the time? Are we going to be playing until midnight? Is it two games per round? How much time per move? All these are actually good questions to know ahead of time but will not determine if I go or not. I am just awaiting my boss's approval.

Barbados national Rules

Some tournament directors make it a point not to match us up. It might be a factor as to whether or not he comes to the National. We are still hoping for good dates on the WCDF (which do you know???) and hopefully a USA vs. Barbados Match to happen.

Michael / Kent, one of my ideas in the past was - ask Joe Schwartz to host USA vs Barbados match in Florida in his area. It will be cheaper deal for Barbados players to get there, and also Joe may help with rooms a bit.

Just another idea which never materialize ... yet.

I can confirm - top Barbados 10-15 players are very tough and compatible with American masters in GAYP.

sorry to burst your bubble alex but visa fees have now gone up and i dont think it will be cheaper for us. best bet is for usa players to come here.

bajan players visa plus hotel plus meals plus plane fair

usa player hotel plus plane fair plus meals.

and it is not a a 100 percent we will get the visa.all of our players dont have visas. plus people like micheal would be glad to get back to barbados. :D
