    Re : Re: 2017 Aurora Spring Open

    There's no open section. Egidijus seems to be narrow-minded.

    Open - This label should only be used when the section is open to all with no restrictions whatsoever.
    Pro - This suggests that the players are professionals when in reality most, if not all, are amateurs.
    Crown (I have seen this elsewhere) - This suggests royalty, of which we have none that I know of.
    Closed - To me, closed suggests 'by invitation only' or earned through qualification in a previous tournament(s). This doesn't seem correct to me.
    Elite - From Wiktionary "someone who is among the best". I'm not sure that grandmasters would consider players who have a rating around 2000 to be elite. It doesn't seem to fit to me.
    Premier - From Wiktionary "first or highest in quality or degree". Similar argument as for elite. In addition, premier is not truly an English word, it's what linguists call a 'borrowed word' (from Middle French).
    Advanced (to go along with intermediate, novice, etc.) - This is vague labeling. There is no indication of what rating range each section covers. This is less helpful than our admittedly incorrect 'Open, U2000, and U1600' labels.
