    Hi. I'm quite new here in chess.com and I've registered myself in the 1600-1800 tournament starting in April 1st. This will be only my 2nd tournament and maybe that's why I'm asking this: there are a lot of players above 1800 registered for this tournament. Why? Isn't it limited to players between 1600 and 1800?

    They registered when they were below 1800. Not to worry though, they have been shifted to a higher section when the tournament started.

    @gunzzzy . . . in tournament pairings you usuaully see a variety of ratings in each group, so yes, a 1200 can be paired against a 1750. You might want to try a tournament with ratings that are less than 1400 or 1500 first to get started. There are a lot of tournaments like this. For instance, look for a tournament that says <1400 (less than 1400) in the rating requirement. An open tournament will allow anyone with any rating to enter. Good luck.

    Im sure this topis has already been adressed but...

    Just played in a Blitz-Tourney had alread 5 of 6 Games won and the last game was pretty over soon. So while waiting I opend another Firefox-Window and started to post something in a forum. Well got pretty much sucked in and did not realize, that match 7 started.

    Got kicked out of Tourney and Match after half of the time... Well as you can imagine - I was very very angry... - even with my 5 of 7 i probably would have get a trophy...

    I understand that you want to protect the integrity of the game and the enjoyment of the other players with this policy. But men it cant really be that hard, to implement a warning signal, when I miss my move for 20% of the match time. And in case of blitz and faster tournaments I think the other players would not mind, to wait 5min to get a point and to have the other player kicked out of the tournament.

    And a player that got kicked out should be able to get a trophy, when his ranking during the tourney was high enough... He has proven something! You know!

    So that was just my litte black pawn. Have fun guys and think about it ;-)

    Tie-Brakes rules are very complicated. Its nearly unpossible to calculate.

    In my tournament -new kid on the block- i found out the slow player will given advantages.

    Because the start very late und setting on last ranking. So the play mostly from lower rank to

    higher rank. In such a way the earning more points. I made this experience as a quick response player,

    because i made 21/22 games with 1-open game 12W-9L-0D with 81_TBpoints. The late starter and very slow

    Player has just 7/22 games with 15-open games 5W-2L-0D with 50_TBpoints. So slow player earning from

    lower ranking and control all other and let them waiting over months to come ready with tournament.

    Hat can be chess-like. It should be in the opposite way, quick-response player should have bonus-point.

    Therefore the Tie-Brake rules are very unfair and not to understand with her hidden calculation.
