    there are groups with 5 and 6 people so thats why you got to play 8 games and someone else has 10.

    Also, I'm wondering how people are playing 10 games in the first round? I won 6, and lost 2 games. Is this due to tie breaks?

    @StrongBow You can join two tournaments as long as one is a "chess.com official tournament" like this one.

    I wonder if it would be possible for someone to let me know if I am able to start this tournament. I am currently playing in a seperate tournament and I do not have any membership.

    It says I have been added, but I believe it's not possible for non members to participate in two different tournaments at the same time, hmm...

    Surely the best way to motivate oneself to learn an opening. Have fun and good luck!
