    Hi, are there many tournaments available for non-subcribers and on regular basis? I would be interested in participating in such tournaments, preferably with long time controls. I'd be greatgul for any information in this regard.

    There have been a few in the past but they were only trials and there's been no news on making them a regular event.

    Search for "Starless" on the Tournaments page if you want to see them.

    I am currently a non-subscriber and I am interested in joining some tournaments. However, looking at the whole (VAST, BEAUTIFUL, DIVERSE, WELL-ORGANIZED) range of ACTIVITIES on this site, I think it is best for the community to ENCOURAGE PLAYERS TO JOIN AND SUPPORT THE SITE! I am a retired pensioner on limited budget, but I have saved up the money and WILL BECOME A SUBSCRIBER SOON!

    I LOVE CHESS! Have played all my life (not entering USCF Tournaments until age 27 at the Chicago Chess Club). The fee is reasonable [this is not any Country Club -- but it is very good for the country and the world to have a well-organized ONLINE CHESS SERVICE such as RHP]! SO I think it is good, better, best to become a subscriber. See you soon! I won't create any WAVES here, but I do subscribe to the old adage ... "The old men will defeat the young whippersnappers, those of skill and means, with cunning, skillful means and utter treachery!" -- or something like that! So ... En Garde!

    Kindest regards,

    Good for you! I'm sure you won't regret subscribing. I certainly don't.

    i think non-subscribers can access tournaments by joining a club and access some tournaments that way...

    some clubs have tournaments running within them that can only be accessed by the members of that club - there is a club for non-subscribers that has tournaments running; i didnt mean that non-subscribers can have access to the normal tournaments only the tournaments within that club.. hope this makes it clearer

    I'm starting up another non-subscriber/provisional players tournament in the Provisional Club's forum. If you're interested, have a look.

    The tournament MacBone speaks of is in Provisional Club! Club 171. We try to keep up with non-subscriber tournaments in the club, which seems to be good for the site: more and more participants go on to become subscribers.
