    It´s ok, LobowolfXXX...

    Here's the short version...I was new to online chess on the site, and I had the default 1200 rating.  I wanted to enter a tournament, but most of them wouldn't let me play because I didn't have 5 completed games; the ones that were coming up that had higher rating brackets wouldn't let me in because I didn't meet the minimum rating.  I tried to join a couple of tournaments that were like 1700-2000, or whatever, but they didn't let me "play up."  The LuckBlack was my first tournament here, and pretty much the only one I could get in, and the tournament setup here makes everyone start at 1200, so I was stuck with a grossly under-inflated rating until I started getting completed games under my belt.  Sorry about that.

    My question is how Lobowolf (2000+!!!!!) is related to a <1350 tounament.
