    Why not be a sub?
    Non subs are considered sub standard on this site. The standard of subs are much higher.
    If you are a sub then you'll have tons of tournaments.

    The answer is: find a few buddies and set up your trounament.

    It has been done, though I am not sure if one finished as scheduled.

    Would recommend this site, it uses RHC as its basis.

    Some people don't want to pay the specific amount for this specific service. Just get used to that.

    You guys are quick to judge. Please remember a lot of folks in the world live at or below the poverty line. They can go to the library to play a game, but for them $30 is a lot of money.

    Cut them some slack. I think its great that RHP allows people to play without paying and we should encourage people to play not make them feel badly for not being able to float the cash to do so.

    there are some chesswebs where non-subs can participate in tournaments, this site seems to create a kind of 'racism' against non-subs

    I pay my subscription fee of some specific reasons:

    (1) I can start as many new games as I want, not only 6 parallell ones. Some non-subs want to have more than their 6 alotted games. If there were no limits for the non-subs, then I don't have the reason to pay my fee.

    (2) I can participate in tournaments. Some subs want to participate subs too. If tournaments were free to enter for non-subs then I don't have the reason to pay my fee.

    Other reasons for me to be a subscriber is clans and sieges, and not having ads in my screen. If non-subs get the same rights as subs to enter turnies, starting new games, etc, then I don't want to pay my fee, i get it anywhere.

    This is not 'racism', not even kind of 'racism'. I think RHP are more than generous to let non-subs play for free, their 6 games and occational non-sub tournament.

    You joined the site 11 days ago and you have made a total of 3 moves. Your question should not have been "how can I find a non-sub tournament" rather "how can I find opponents?" Until you have played at least the 5 rated games required to get a rating, you will find it difficult to get opponents.

    I suggest you look at the Open Invites page and take up any game available to you, then play 5 games to get a provisional rating.

    When you have a reasonable history of completed games is the time to start thinking about extra things such as tournaments and subscriptions.
