I am confused about my rating vis-a-vis my eligibility to enter certain tournaments. I wanted to join the Delta Banded 1400-1600 but it says provisionals can't enter and I'm 2 games away from finishing my provisional status (if any of my opponents are reading this some moves would be greatly appreciated). So I entered the Mid-rating 1300-1499 when my rating was p1495 but now it's 1503 and I also have a high in the last thirty days of 1563 which the My Profile page says is what is used to determine eligibility for tournaments with rating restrictions! So am I eligible for the 1300-1499? Would anybody care if I entered the 1400-1600 as a provisional with the hope that two games would be finished before the tournament started and I'd then wouldn't be a provisional? Help!!!!
