    Oh! Now I know Renny challenge to Deathwish. :P

    Sorry for my poor English, Renny.

    I was wondering if anyone can explain for me why higher ranked players are able to start in lower graded tournaments; for example there are currently 33 players on 1300+ in the 19th Chess.com 1001-1200 group. I thought the rankings were sorted into the correct grades before the tournament starts? How do the high rated players get into a lower rated group? Thank you.

    Those players were in the rating range when the tournament started. However, they've won a lot of games since then, so their rating has changed since then.

    How can we view the trophies we have won in tournaments??

  • #526

    I have a doubt, if you registered in a tournament of 100 players and there are several groups and Each move has upto 5 days time, then typically such a tournament would run for like 1 yr to finish just the group stage matches???

    knadi: You are quite correct. Large tournaments do take a long time to finish, especially if players take vacations.

  • #528

    Puchiko- how does taking a vacation affect the tournament. In the middle of a game can a player simply take a vacation for a month?

    Deathwish, thats the limit sorry. Only staff can create unlimited and those are for official tournaments.

    The site already calls it multi day tourneys and online chess should be called multi day chess simply because it is.

    What is the timeout ratio?

  • #540

    Timeout ratio is the percentage of your games you lose because you ran out of time.
