    Can you explain something for me? How come there are people rated below 1700 and they are playing in the "2015 July Banded Threesomes 1700-1800" tournament?
    When I checked the tournament for 1800+ there was a notification that I wasn't eligible and my rating is 1793, so I understand that my rating is too low.

    What usually happens is a person has the required rating when they enroll in a tournament. However, your rating will change every time you complete a rated game so it is easily possible to have your rating change after enrolling so that it is no longer within the parameters.

    This would be especially likely for someone who has a large number of ongoing games and completes games frequently..
