I think we've gone the full circle in this subject. Women's titles should stay for the reasons I described in my earlier post and even better described by Kosteniuk in her article. Women are still achieving WIM and WGM titles which suggests that logistics are not having a massive impact.
Being WFM, I wish I could demand conditions! I consider myself lucky if my entry fee is waived. Some round-robin tournament organisers can be generous with offering free accommodation and food, but that's more of a lucky strike than a standard. When I become WIM I'll let you know how much my conditions improve
Alan - I've been invited by Sean to play in IM norm round-robin back in February. But back then I didn't feel confident that I'd do well so I declined (it was the right decision as I found out later). Now I also feel it's too much of a physical and psychological strain to play 4 days of double rounds. I'm definitely with Nigel Short on this one - one round a day, time for preparation and relaxation. I have also researched Gibraltar's tournament table and found that I'm highly unlikely to get a WIM norm there as I will almost certainly not play enough titled players. Last time there was a huge mass of untitled players below 2300. I'm probably going to Cap D'Agde where at least they have a rating cap of minimum 2000. And then London Classic will probably have a WIM round-robin.
