    Looks like the drop-down is pre-populated and since it doesn't have higher than 3 then it doesn't seem that you can have more than 3 advancing in any round.

    I have a stalemate, what do I do now please?

  • 3 years ago · Quote · #363


    No sir, it is stalemate.

    I do not know if I did this correctly, white to move, no moves can be made

    I created a tournament yesterday, but it does not appear on my upcoming tournaments list. Is this normal?

    Did you create a min and/or max rating on the tournament ?  and if so, are your own ratings within that criteria ?

  • 3 years ago · Quote · #368


    Yes and yes. I've already joined it! I thought that might be the reason it is invisible (namely, it would shift to a different category) but other tournaments I have joined still appear on the upcoming list, such as the upcoming thematic chess.com tournament.

    If for example you are rated 1200 and you create a tournament for members rated 1400 - 1600, you won't see those on your page as you're not eligible to join them being outside of that ratings bracket.

    You can only see tournaments that you are eligible to join.

    However, if you log out, then click on the tournaments page (whilst NOT logged in) you will see the tournaments on the page there.

    Kohai, I tried that experiment and it did indeed work as you said.

    However, it is a 960 tournament with range 1300-1600. My 960 rating is 1308, so I am in that range. My normal chess rating is >1600 which would kick me out. However, since it is 960, I hope and trust that the rating range applies to 960, not the normal, or?

    The name of the tournament is "No Blindside 960" if you would like to confirm.

    On your tournaments page, its shown at the top under "tournaments i am currently directing", thats where the image link above came from

    7th sense. Most people know that that's the way it works, and they just grin and bear it. What you can do is simply turn off the chat feature for the few that complain. That way you don't risk upping the emotional ante which would poison the game.

    That's true, but it doesn't show up on the upcoming tournaments. That's why I asked if this was normal. Will it screen entries based in their 960 rating?
  • 3 years ago · Quote · #377


    yes it should do

    One of the things I have noticed particularly in knock type tournaments (i.e group size of just 2 players), if an odd number of players go through to the next round, the person that gets the bye in the next round is the person who is mid field. Fore example: if 11 players go through to the next round. According to how chess.com determined the make up the groups in the next round the groups will be.

    • 1 will play 7
    • 2 will play 8
    • 3 will play 9
    • 4 will play 10
    • 5 will play 11
    • 6 will get the bye

    I would think the the top rank player should get the bye rather than the  mid ranked person. This is more important in the final rounds where there are 3 players left and, you get 1 verse 3 and the 2nd ranked player get a free ride to the gold medal round. The way it currently is being done doesn't seem to be fair.

    Question: I've played 5 online games, and tried to enter a tournament, but still got this message:


    You must have completed at least 5 "Online Chess" games to compete in this tournament.

    Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    Try checking your games history :)

    Click on View, then on the right side of the game, click on Details. That shows if the game was rated or unrated. The 5 needed before you can play in tournaments must be rated
