    No, wait.

    How womanly of you to inform us that you don't.

    Is the objective of entering a tourney, no matter the size, to win?😲
    In my opinion and as you all know I always have one. I think they are for learning and trying different things to see if they work or not for Clan Challenges. Another reason I am in favor of separate ratings the Clan Challenges should have their own rating, but I guess it would not be possible due to cost of changes that would be required. At least that is my understanding.

    After all the friendly, warm-hearted, well-meaning encouragement from my dear friend Very Rusty, I decided to try and improve my game by joining tourneys to get some variation in play and level.

    Just won my first one.
    I might read a chess book next!

    Can you explain how this assertion will actually work out in the real world of comparative pairing in clan challenges?

    I don't mention my tournament wins either but I guess when it is your first one ever in the life span one has been on the site, it something to be proud of.

    obviously I cant enter tournaments unless I re-subscribe, when I am feeling a bit better I might just do that.
