Why no 2nd place?

    Hiya, depends on the number of players - in that one ye mention there were only 5 players. Help file here   says:

     "In Chess.com tournaments any tournament with fewer than 13 players will only have 1 winner. Tournaments with 13 or more players will have 1st - 3rd place."

    so do you get points if you dont get first?

    What are tournament points anyway?

    I've looked all over for a definition but all I ever find are explanations of the tie break system.

    Thanks Mr. Cobblepot. Yes. I have come across that explanation a few times. And though it explains how points are accumulated, it doesn't really say why the points are there in the first place. What can I do with those points? Do they allow me special priveleges somehow? Things like that. And this is just a curiosity. That is why I haven't really pursued it with all that much vigor.

    Thanks so much for responding.

    Just for clarification, Tournament Points are separate from Member Points.  Correct?
