Tournament question

wewo1999

I joined my first tournament yesterday. A Daily Tournament,this one https://www.chess.com/tournament/fall-standard-classic-2017. What happens next? Will I get an invitation to play or do I have to do something?

 when it starts you will be allocated games automatically. Where you are white it will be your move and the move icon at the top of the screen (on the PC/Mac version) will indicate this to you.

ty. Will the game will be visible on the home screen as well?

Trying to get to grips with how tournaments work - firstly I joined a Daily Tournament today, but have no idea when it will start. I presume from the comment above that I just have to wait until it starts since I can't see any start date.
Secondly, I joined a Live Tournament, played one game and then went back to my Home page - I can no longer find that Tournament. Will I be prompted for the second round, and how can I find the status of that Tournament?

I can answer your first question. When the tournament starts all your tournament games will appear on your home page and you will proceed like any other game. The status of tournaments should be accessible by putting your mouse on play then clicking on tournaments.

Thanks - the first game was probably on my home page, but I didn't see it there as I started playing. However, when I click on play/tournaments I can only see ones about to start, and those completed, but not the one currently running. I'll figure it out eventually, but I'm concerned that the remaining 4 out of 5 rounds will just timeout and reduce my rating in the process.

I have a big problem and I hope you can help me. my problem is I can't join any daily tournament now because I lose many games by timeout so what I need to do now to join a daily tournament.

stop timing out. The timeout rate is based on 90 days, so your timeout percentage will change if you change your (bad) habit.

Unless you signed up for a club match, Daily tourneys are always more than one game. So you should have others in your game list.


That said, according to your archive, you haven't played any Daily tourneys or Matches.

I found the tourney you joined, that hasn't started (which you posted in).  To answer your questions from there, the max group size is how many players will play in each group (at the max). So, since it is 12 and the tourney size is 228, then there will be 19 groups of 12 players in round 1. Those 12 players will play 11 games at a time (1 against each other player in that group) then when each game completes, will play a second game against that player, colors reversed.

 

Once all games in that group are done, the # advance option tells you how many of the 12 will qualify for the next round. So, in that event, the top 3, barring ties which can result in more, will play in round 2. You have to wait until all groups complete for round 2 to start.

 

Also, the tourney won't start until there are 228 entrants.

How can I see the standings in my 12 person bracket of the New Years “move a day” tourney?

On the website, go to the tourney page and click on pairings and find your group.

I am playing in daily tournament which is wrapping up.  There could be two or three players tied for third place.  Would they each get recognition on their Stats page, or only the player with the highest tie break score get recognition?

Tiebreaks are used to award trophies and placement.

They tourney creation has options to limit rating ranges. They may be in advanced settings.
