    In 2 months time, I'll be going on a vacation of three weeks. I have no tournament experience yet. Now I have joined a tournament with a time out of 3 days and a time bank of 33 days. Will this be sufficient, you think? Or should I pick a tournament with a longer time bank? Thanx for your answers!

    What you have to ask yourself is this:
    Am I always able to move within 3 days (except in my vacation)?

    If yes, stay in the tournament. The 33 day timebank will be more than enough to carry you through 3 weeks of vacation

    If no, leave tournament. Find a tournament with longer timebank.

    Thanks! Than I'll think I'll manage just fine. By the way, it was below text that got me confused...

    "Tournament games time out automatically 2 days after the timeout period expires."
