Originally posted by Doctor RatNo worries with non-banded tournies.
I subscribed to RHP (yay!), entered the KID tournament and then withdrew because I don't know how fair it is to the other players. What is everyone's take on a provisional (whose rating is a fair bit higher than p1200) entering tournaments before at least 20 games? I have no problem waiting until my given rating better reflects, I mean, I don't want to sandbag any points or anything. Any input will be appreciated.
Originally posted by clandarkfireI think banded tournaments are tournaments that are restricted to a ratings range. On the tournaments page, I see an August banded 0-1200, and then an August banded 1200-1400, an August banded 1400-1600, and an August banded 1600+, where the number refer to ratings. So if you would like to play other players in your own ratings class/band, you can choose the appropriate tournament. At least that's what I think they are.
what does banded even mean?
