The dispersement of hard vs. easy opponents is interesting here.

Both of the current debates are in the last round. Noumena has dropped off the face of the planet temporarily, thus forfeiting to imabench. Imabench will be moving to the next round.

Should Imabench and I get started on Round 2?

I was originally going to do a random generator for pairings, but if you guys want to, I suppose it would speed things up. If he agrees, I suppose it's okay.

I gave some consideration to voting on this, but I don't think I'm quite the right person to judge here. Alas, I'm not even sure if non-tornament judges are permitted to vote anyway... if someone could allay my ignorance on that subject, I would be temporally -though most definitely not eternally- grateful.
