It's upsetting that I have a better tournament score (6-3-1) than many players that made it to the second round. Yet, because only the top two in each group make the second round I was eliminated. Yes, I did understand the tournament system before I entered. I'm just disappointed. A tournament based on a player's tournament score alone would be more to my liking.

Can anyone direct me to something that describes the structure of the tournament brackets?  I asked the guy who created one tournament and he said he had no idea what happened after round 2, i.e., no idea whether it would be 1 group of 15 or 3 groups of 5.  If it was three groups of five, and if 3 people advance, then there would be 9, what then ??????  

Anyway, I was told that it was standardized by Chess.com, but I haven't been able to find anything describing it.  Any links, etc. would be appreciated.

You must have completed at least 5 "Online Chess" games to compete in this tournament. What does it mean?

On-line chess means the slow, turn-based games-those that are not live chess games. You have seven going, so once five of these finish, you will be able to take part in that tournaments.

If you go to the tournaments page, yours shows at the top. In your group, group 8, there are still some people playing their games, so it won't show who goes onto the next round from your group till those games are finished. Once everyone from round 1 has finished playing, round 2 games will start.

Finaly I find something that has at least a chance of being seen by staff! :D

Just wanted to let somebody know...that you guys' "12th Chess.com Quick Knockout Tournament (1401-1600)" is falling to pieces and nobody seems to care!

One single person has been holding up the first round for over 40 days (even though he has won 0 games and probably wouldn't win any even if he came back), and he has a month of vacation still left! People are getting angry at the tournament and the staff for not doing anything, or for just plain not giving a reason for why they can't do anything :(

Hi, sorry if this gets asked a lot but I am new. I would like to play a few tournaments but it looks like the only tournaments you have are correspondance tournaments. Do you have any blitz tournaments that are over in a day or two? Thanks.
