say you're playing in a rated tourney that's 1200-1300 but your rating is 1500, my idea is that you can play but can't be the offical tourney winner. in otherwords if you're over 150 pts. over a rated tourney limit you can still play but you don't get the credit for winning the tourney
No, that wouldn't be fair. Take a 1550 player who plays in a broad banded tournament for 1400-1550. And he/she only plays games of that tournament and wins all of them - by the end that player reaches about 1700.
