I have played in a few tourneys and qualified for the second round (or even third round), but I never heard from the group again.
Upon further investigation, I found out my name shows as eliminated even though I won the group.
Does anyone know why this takes place? I feel like I'm wasting my time busting my chops to excel, it turns out I'm out anyway while someone else who didn't score as high as i did, is in.
I've come across a few tourneys where the tournament creator decided to toss winning players out without a clear reason. Could you post the link to the tournament home page?
Looks like you won too many games. That's just arrogant.
Mayne ur too high in the tournament
I guess you have no idea what arrogant means. I have yet to win a single tourney.
It is not for a TD to decide who goes to the next round and who doesn't. It should be solely based on one's personal accomplishments.
Now, if TD''s make the decision for themselves who is "worthy" to go to the next round, I will probably will not renew my membership. There isn't a valid reason to be tossed out without an explanation. Actually, it is right out dishonest.
Sorry, I was being sarcastic;)
OK, no sweat.. ;-)
I don't know why that happened. i didn't toss anyone. Check with chess.com help. They will be able to shed some light on it.
I dont know what could have happened. Go to chess.com Help and support maybe?
i was just in a tourney and eliminated with 11 points, but the two people ahead of me had 9 and 10 points. I was eliminated but they are playing for the championship. I guess these tournaments are not set up like your normal weekend swiss. The group you're in makes a difference. And who's in your group makes a difference.
I noticed that there were three players showing advancement in your bracket when only two should. You had the tie break over third place. Third place was also eliminated. Looks like a screwy system glitch to me.
It looks like it's almost not worth it to play in tourneys
I don't see a reason why you shouldn't have advanced. As your TD suggests, it is best to contact support.
Please post if/when you find out
Well its obvious ur 100 points higher than the above rated tournament ur in maybe the tournament person thought it wasnt fair even the tournament i joined there were supposed to be 3 people advancing but only 2 and it wasnt fair
The top rated player in the second round is way higher than eagle. Returnofxopchesser, in a tourney where three players advance, there is an additional rule that no more than 50% of the bracket can advance. For example, lets say round 1 has 6 players max with three advancing. 3 guys make it to round two. Round two starts with some brackets at 5 players. Only 2 players will advance in this case. (Unless second and third happen to,be tied in which case both would advance)
