I played in my first tournament. After round one, everyone else kept playing and I just sat and watched. Even the losers continued to play, so I know I did not get knocked out. After each round the standings just added another loss to my name even though I did not play. Is there something I have to do to continue playing?
I am persuming you are spekaing about Live Chess Tournaments.
If so i would suggest reading the followeing article here:
Please pay particular attention to the section near the end marked "bye points".
This will explain why you may have had to sit a round out, however this does not count as a loss for you. ITs where there isnt a player to match you against you get 1 point.
Thanks for the reply Hydra. Unfortunately, I did not sit out for one round. In the 4th round of play I still played one game. In the standings section I was listed as 0/3.
I see, im sorry schurz52, i do not know the answer then ,
perhaps if you submit a ticket to staff they may be able to help:
