I don't know :(
If a player is rated 1750 (for example) when he joins a 1601 - 1800 tournament, then while waiting for the tournament to start, wins some of his standard games, his ratings increases and possibly goes above 1800. Its up to the tournament director to remove anyone outside of the ratings bracket before the tournament begins.
If its an official Chess.com tournament, he should be automatically be moved to the correct rating bracket group before it beings.
well it happened to me that a 2000 player would join a <1500 tournament or so
Odd, which tournament ?
I don't remember now, I just remember seeing it :(
I also remember being invited to lower-rated tournaments and I was able to join. It was a few months ago though, maybe 3 or 4. Guess it's fixed now, I didn't see it recently
Please use this forum category to post all your ideas/questions/comments/etc about tournaments. We hope you enjoy the new feature...and the new forum!
i need play tour please confirm on it
Hi, is it possible to play tournaments in Live Chess
Not yet no sorry
hi to all.
first of all i must say that im not a premium member ( just a free member ).
if i participate in one tournament and then my matches finish but the others match remain yet,can i participate in one other tournament?or the first tournament must finish completely?
you can join another one
So is it safe to say that only first place of each pairing moves on or does top two? Let me know please & thank you.
it depends on the tourney format: on the tournament homepage, it should say "# advance", or something like that
Turn-based (Correspondence style / Days per move) chess is accessed from the PLAY -> Online Chess -> Start New Game menu.
Fast chess (Live Chess / Minutes or seconds per move) is accessed from PLAY -> Live Chess.
1. If i register to one tournament and before starting the tournament i got regret of participating in it, how can i remove myself from tournament?
2. for participating in tournaments they needed one rating,is that rating our highest rating in different modes ( like: Live, Blitz, turn-base ) or just turn-based will consider?
please answer quickly to these questions.
thanks so much.
bye to all.
it's online chess not live
