Yes, the standard in these kinds of tournaments is always going to be very mixed. There are probably 10 players who have any chance whatsoever, and many of the rest are average club standard. In U18 events, you sometimes get 9-year olds turning up... If you're present at the venue, it's sometimes fun to pick out the better matches and players, but if you're depending on a single-table stream, anything is possible.
