    Only if those tournaments are marked specifically as 'No Vacation'.

    Your vacation time will pause all games except those ones.

    Thanks, but I can't work out where to see if vacation is active in a tournement, I am looking to join this one:

    http://www.chess.com/tournament/16th-chesscom-quick-knockouts-1201-1400

    which starts on the 1st of April and I will be on vacation until the 4th/5th. I don't want to regester and instantly lose 10 games!

    You have probably heard this quetion many times but please humor me. I have set up a tournament (All for one fun tourney). The tournament is for rating 800 - 1200. When I set it up I had a rating <1200. The signing up for the tournament is going really slow. Only one person so far. But I am keeping it on the list. However, in a mean time my own rating has gone above 1200. Should I know amend the tournament max rating? Or is my rating from the time I set up the tournament valid?

    Hi. I'm quite new here in chess.com and I've registered myself in the 1600-1800 tournament starting in April 1st. This will be only my 2nd tournament and maybe that's why I'm asking this: there are a lot of players above 1800 registered for this tournament. Why? Isn't it limited to players between 1600 and 1800?

    They registered when they were below 1800. Not to worry though, they have been shifted to a higher section when the tournament started.

    in an open tournament how do the pairings work? would a 1200 player be paired against a 1750 player?

    @gunzzzy . . . in tournament pairings you usuaully see a variety of ratings in each group, so yes, a 1200 can be paired against a 1750. You might want to try a tournament with ratings that are less than 1400 or 1500 first to get started. There are a lot of tournaments like this. For instance, look for a tournament that says <1400 (less than 1400) in the rating requirement. An open tournament will allow anyone with any rating to enter. Good luck.

    Im sure this topis has already been adressed but...

    Just played in a Blitz-Tourney had alread 5 of 6 Games won and the last game was pretty over soon. So while waiting I opend another Firefox-Window and started to post something in a forum. Well got pretty much sucked in and did not realize, that match 7 started.

    Got kicked out of Tourney and Match after half of the time... Well as you can imagine - I was very very angry... - even with my 5 of 7 i probably would have get a trophy...

    I understand that you want to protect the integrity of the game and the enjoyment of the other players with this policy. But men it cant really be that hard, to implement a warning signal, when I miss my move for 20% of the match time. And in case of blitz and faster tournaments I think the other players would not mind, to wait 5min to get a point and to have the other player kicked out of the tournament.

    And a player that got kicked out should be able to get a trophy, when his ranking during the tourney was high enough... He has proven something! You know!

    So that was just my litte black pawn. Have fun guys and think about it ;-)
