    holyc cow, it starts in 5 and a half hours. Good luck everyone!

    Let's just hope the guy is alright.

    I think it is probably because Patzer24 has to log on and start the tournament, it will get sorted out and no has started yet so don't worry about losing games on time. It is probably hard to get it all sorted out because there are lots of different sections with 1000+ people in.

    When the Tournament starts chess.com will message you.

    This might be a technical problem. Would hopefully be solved soonLaughing

  • 3 years ago


    i have the same problem.

    i don't see any games even if the tournament is supposed to have started 14 hours ago...

    Could the technical staff of chess.com tell us more about it?

  • 3 years ago


    If you look at Patzer's profile he did not LOG ON to chess.com yet, he may be busy.

    It seems everyone has the same problem

  • 3 years ago


    I am having the same problem. It says the tournament started 2 hours and 45 minutes ago. But I have no games, and I cannot see any pairings. 

    Did some of us get byes?

  • 3 years ago


    why is the tournament started but i haven´t got any started games?

    And when I click on pairings it says : The tournament has not started yet :-/
