Here is how it works: 

1. Be a reddit member. If you are not, go away and signup for reddit.com. Then after you have marinated in reddit.com for several months and consider yourself a legit redditor, you will then feel worthy to join future tournaments. In the future. Not today. 

2. Sign up. If you aren't a Chess.com member, signup for free here: www.chess.com/register.  Then choose your correct tournament section.

3. Post your reddit name in these tournament comments. That way we know who to make fun of when we see you on reddit. Or severely shame if we catch you cheating (see below). 

4. Don't Cheat. That means: don't get help from friends. Don't use computers. If you think the biggest chess site doesn't know when you are cheating, you are in for a jolly surprise. Not only will your Chess.com account get closed, but we will post a list of cheaters in /r/chess with their reddit names. Plus, http://i.qkme.me/3u6c0m.jpg

5. Win Prizes. Each section has the following prizes:

- 1st Place: 1 year Reddit Gold, 1 hour lesson with Grandmaster Coach, 1 year Chess.com Diamond Membership
- 2nd Place: 1 year Diamond Membership
- 3rd Place: 1 year Chess.com Gold Membership

    Greenlantern213> Maybe...but some people (like me) simply had no rating for this kind of chess so we start out at 1200. I've won all my games so far so I'm now sitting at 1590 for my online chess rating (which will no doubt go down once I play more games of this length.) My bullet is around 1200 and blitz around 1400 so I think I joined the right group (1200-1400).

    For a tournamnent that is supposed to be in the range of 1200-1399 there seems to be a lot of players who are rated 1600+ and have never lost a game.  Fishy?  Yeah.

    2 out of my 5 opponents are active and have not lost to time, however one of the three not-so-active opponents is playing only one of my games against them and lost on time to the other.

    Essentially the two active players have a handicap of one win against me!

    Dan, no need to QQ. There are players who are better than you. Every loss is an opportunity to learn. Chances are people who signed up to this tournament who are good players but new to chess.com will be ringers. Just play your best.

    I'm disappointed in this tourney. There are obvious ringers here. There is a player named cdessert in my group that signed up to chess.com just for this tournament and was therefore unrated, but is in no way under 1400 strength. I would say he/she is over 1800 and maybe over 2000.

    I think I'll just withdraw.
