    I would suggest joining a club that runs lots of tournaments and asking the leader to create one of your choice.
    2 clubs among others that run a lot of tournaments areClub 229andClub 383

    Club tournaments are ok but I consider the site tournaments to be the “real” tournaments.

    It's only logical and FAIR to level the field for players participating at various strengths. So I strongly recommend/urge/implore that tournaments be created with an additional "2200 - 2999" class.

    It is inexplicable that pools should be created with ratings raging from 1600 to 2999. There is an assumption that a 1600 rated player may want to actually win a tournament, even while playing opponents that may be 100 or 200 points above him/her.

    There is absolutely no valid reason to avoid creating properly stratified class tournaments!
