    Must I be subscriber to be able to enter any tournaments on this site?

    Reason I'm asking is it seems that I can enter available tournaments as shown when I'm on my page but once I want to enter anyone of these tournaments it tells me that its only available to subscribers. Can I ask then that these tournaments not show if I'm not able to enter. It's annoying to see available tournaments but one cannot enter. No where on your help or FAQ does it clearify that only subscribers are allowed to enter tournaments. I'm I missing something here...

    I believe there have been a few tournaments for non-subs in the past, but generally you have to subscribe to enter them. It's the same with most, if not all, other pay sites - you're not going to get the full features without coughing up the dough.

    I don't think you can turn off the notification that the tournaments are available to you, because it's not exactly untrue. They are available - all you have to do is pay the entry fee.

    Well I'm currently playing in a tournament on a paying site which allow for non-sub to enter, they could do the same here. I understand about paying to enjoy all the features.

    Help : subs

    Which takes you to the following

    Subscribing to Red Hot Pawn removes advertisements and enables all site features. Please <click here> for more details. Hitting the click here tells you the options that are made available by subscribing.

    The tournaments are "available" to you based on your current rating, however they are an enticement showing "look what you are missing" to try and make you pay the subscription fee.
