    Im new to this chess site but i play from 6 years now .
    Straight to the point - Can anyone tell me is there any tournaments for non-subs users ? And can you show me if there are ones ?!?! I saw in one club post that this kind of tournaments exist

    There are not regular tournaments for non-subs. Very infrequently, there will be one hosted by Russ, but you really shouldn't wait around for one. There are, though, clubs that run tournaments in their private forums, with pairings done by hand and not by the site. The Provisional Club is one of these.

    In fact Randolph and Kewpie have answered your question as you required.

    But we can put it like that: NO

    Just to be clear, there are some that happen very infrequently.

    For example;

    Tournament 5013
    Tournament 5012
    Tournament 5011
    Tournament 175
    Tournament 84
    Tournament 53
    Tournament 8965

    There are others

    Start a new game, and fill in their playing name in the "opponent" box. If they don't know you it doesn't hurt to send a PM first, many people just delete unexpected challenges.

    Thank you.
    If you want to challenge a specific player: Go to that players profile page. On the left menu, under "Profile links" click the "Challenge <Player>" link.

    If you want to create an open invite for anyone to join (within your possibly set rating limits) go to the "Open Invites" page, 3rd menu icon from the left. And click on the "Create open invite game" link.
