    One game left which should've been over 10 moves ago...

    Oh well, nothing we can do about it but patently wait for that vacation time to end... I don't blame anyone ever to try getting the best result out of every game, still it is a little annoying because on top of that, the outcome of the game is irrelevant for the tournament..

    Anyway, happy new year everyone and good luck in round 2 - maybe we'll play each other Wink

    Right! Laughing

    I guess it is because these tournaments can take forever (some over 2 years!), so it wouldn't but fair, if you had to waste all your time waiting for hundreds and thousends of other players Wink

    So I can participate to eleven (for instance) tournaments as a basic member provided that only one of them is unofficial???

  • 14 months ago

    ChessDave89

    DimiMerase, as basic member you are only allowed one unofficial tournament simultaneously. However, you can play as many official tournaments as you want, so you can play here as well :)  gl and hf

    Currently, I am participating to 1 unofficial tournament, but in spite of the fact that basic members are allowed to play only 1 turn-based tournament at a time, I was able to register for this tournament. What's going to happen??

    Thanks ChessDave89 for commenting, yeah i have seen that i am allowed to play as many games as i want :-)

  • 14 months ago

    ChessDave89

    deligent , what makes you think, you are only allowed 10 games? You can play as many games at the same time as you want, don't worry! ;)

    I am not a paid member of chess.com and so i am allowed to play only 10 games at a time. I am already playing 2 games, so will i be disqualified from this tournament because my total game count is >10? Please clarify.

    Sick of playing a tournament and being obliterated in the first round by a seemingly much weaker player (new to chess.com) who's rating rises several hundred points in a week? Yell

    Then try my tournament! Wink
