Thanks and God Bless,Scott
It is the seed, in which you entered the tournament based on rating.
He is talking about the bottom right of the picture.
Thanks, Have a good night!
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!
The money I've spent on chess.com is the best money I've spent in a while! :)
