I don't think there is anything the mods can do, By rights at this point in time he is of correct rating to join the tournament and good luck to him. I suppose it is down to players themselves to choose what to do, hell, it's not as if they are going to win anything and what good is a 1400 winners medal to a 1800 rated player. I don't get it.

For busfnatic - a banded tourny is one where the entrance is limited by your best rating within the last 30 days.
So for example, this tournament Tournament 1212 could only be entered by players with a maximum rating of 1250 in the previous 30 days before the start of the tournament (albeit several of us are now rated higher than that).
