    Could you say how this will work with respect to the game limit? Say for example you have 3 regular games to begin with, and the tournament adds 6. Will you still be able to add 3 more, giving you your 6 regular games and the 6 tournament games? Or will you not be able to start new games because you already have 9 total?

    We're having our own informal tournament in one of my clubs, and this could affect some of the non-subs if they signed up for this tournament and then couldn't start new games.

    Thanks...

    Don't take it hard Iron, he's not relinquishing the rights of subs. He and his crew are simply giving the non-subs a taste of what they may be eligible for if they were subs. It's good business. Good advertising and it does not cramp the subs games any. No harm no foul as they say.

    In my view this situation illustrates a few things :-

    - many people do not read the forums. It might take a while to fill up the 128 player slot for one of the tournaments.
    - perhaps some people think it is a joke. Look at the fake rated blitz post.
    - some might be willing to subscribe if they can get a taste of things.
    - having never played in a tournament here, I would like to see what happens.

    We're having our own informa ...[text shortened]... non-subs if they signed up for this tournament and then couldn't start new games.

    What the potential partcipants haven't realised is that after there participation in the tournament is over, whether that be round 1 or round 10, they have 14 days to subscribe, after which their accounts are suspended.

    Stop scaremongering. Cut your toenails if you are completely bored. You can eat them after that if you are still bored.

    Indeed.

    You cannot start another game before you are back at five again.

    Most welcome move. More so given the background that other sites like chessmaniac allow tournaments for non-subscribers and also allow clubs and clans (in different names like groups, teams etc) for non-subscribers. People are having a good time there - Note the massive activity going on in those sites!
    Lets hope the best for TIME FOR CHESS.

    This is a shame
    I'll probably get stuck with 6 games that move every 3 days rather than the multiple a days I have now 😕.
