    I am not sure about the question but my first thought is there are no limits even if you haven't upgraded

    If you join a tournament and the round of that tournament is over the tournament you are currently in (which is paused because you have to wait for the next round) doesn't count as a tournament for the time being, allowing you to enter a new tournament. Which means you can join multiple tournaments without premium.

    short: If you are waiting for a new round to start, it does not count as a tournament untill the next round start.

    What happens when the next round of the previous tournament starts do you get kicked out of one of the tournaments?

    nope, you just continue unless you are eliminated of course.

    But then when you are currently playing in a thematic tournament and round two starts in the other tournament wouldn't you be playing in two tournaments simultaniously and isn't that not allowed with free membership.

    Not really, it's allowed to play technically in 2 tourneys at the same time but not join at the same time.
