Chess Tournaments Nowadays
What i find quite cool about chess.com, is that you can play in online tournaments for free. This i found was quite cool. It is a shame though, that not many people look on the tornaments page and join Tournaments, especially if you are a beginner. It is really good to join tournaments, because you can test youself in many games, against different ratings, with points at the end of it. If you are a beginner, there are some really great tournaments to start you off. I would recommend Beginner's Tourney, as this is for beginners with people that are not exactly the grandmaster. However, tournaments like this are not that frequent, as you can get more points from higher level tournaments, being that you play much better rated people. When you do get better, there are Chess960 tournaments and other ones with Kings Gambit (ETC.). As there are limited places, join now, as this could be the start of your chess career!!
There are also other tournaments on the tournament page:
