It is the seed, in which you entered the tournament based on rating.

I just quite from a tournament (Blitz - 5m) because publicity over the board doesn't allowed me to see full board. I'm protesting about this situation. I know publicity is important to keep the site, but during a tournament?... On the board?... If don't want people playing for free, close the site for us. I have no money to spend in chess. I play for fun. Scores aren't important, but I like to end my games. It's the first I quite, but probably I'll leave this site. Thanks for reading this!
