There are many players shown with just the year of birth which I find strange as I believe the entry form asks for DOB.
The internet form has a column headed "born" which suggests a year of birth would suffice.

As many have pointed out on this forum, tournament organisers should cease asking for dates of birth and where they do players should refuse to give it. No doubt English arbiters/organisers/graders will catch on to the security risks eventually.

If the event isn't able to check the arrival of all the participants, would it not be better for round 1 at least, to re-pair players without opponents? Perhaps the ECF's FIDE delegate should be mandated to propose it.

Propose it to whom?

If you want to change the Swiss Pairing rules, you have to go to the Commission that determines them. If that Commission has Stewart Reuben on it, it's usually better to just e-mail Stewart direct.

I fear you've missed the irony in Roger's last sentence.

Perhaps not surprising, as the incident to which I assume you're referring occurred almost 9 years ago.

It reflects very badly on the organisers if they are not enforcing their own rules on checking player eligibility, which would have also ensured that no-one was paired who was not present at the event.

At the risk of derailing this thread, what incident was that? PM if needs be...

Edit: Now been told about the incident. I did know about it, but it escaped me above. :lol:

Round 2 much better for the team, well done. Reports and great photographs on the ECF website. Like the team t-shirts, check out here:- http://www.englishchess.org.uk/?p=18882 For supporters here in the UK it's good to have the various bits of information being posted, it's a poor second to actually being there but keep posting when you can - much appreciated.

Thanks for the props Peter, but it is not me reporting! Would seem so with the adorable photo of Callaghan! I think it is Hillary Altman and Neil Elliot! Thanks to them for keeping us updated.
