    As a paying provisionally rated player I can't play tourneys...OK fine...
    but why is there a x-mas tourney for starless(non-paying) players?

    How about a tourney for us paying P people!

    Um, there are plenty of provisional players in tournaments. You sure you weren't trying to enter something that was already full, or had rating limits?

    You can play in all tournaments for subscribers APART from banded tournies.

    This was brought about because provisional newbies were joining 1200-1400 banded tournaments, even though their true rating levelled off at 1800+. It was a good modification to the site, cos players were pretty much guaranteed to be playing other players at their own level.

    Unfortunately for you, you seem to have joined at a time when the majority of the tournies being offered are banded.
