If I have my vacation turned on and a tournement that I am regestered for starts whilst on vacation, will those games automatically be put on vacation?
E.G. Can I regester for a tournement that I know I will have turned vacation on for, for when it starts or will I automatically time out all of the games?
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:
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 am currently in a tournament 1000 - 1200. Just looked at the leader board and I aam in 3rd position !! My rating has just gone above 1200 but the 2 above me are 1500+. Are these just medal hunters ? Knowbody gets that good that fast !!!!!!!
Dont you think we should get free tournaments
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?
i am new to the site but wold like to try a tournament.
@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.
thanks dr mac...ill try it
If is the first player in tournament removed,elimineted or withdrew where is advance 3 of 6, is that means that 4.place is 3.; 3.place is 2. and 2. place is first ???
Can someone please provide me a link that describes how these tournaments work? I'm kinda lost ....
Thank you, Kohai!
