As a player in this bracket, I can tell you why I choose not to play, which may help:Stewart Reuben wrote:Richard Bates >The lack of players in the 2250-2400 bracket seems to be a particular weakness in the British at the moment <
Reducing the entry fee or increasing the prize money available do not seem to do the trick. Any suggestions?
1. Very high entry fee compared to other tournaments, with nothing making it worth paying.
2. Far too many players in it rated much lower than me.
3. Last time I did play, in 1997, the BCF failed to pay me the prize I won.
