1. The green number means the minimum number of entrants has been reached.
2. Russ once said he had set tournaments to start two weeks after creating them if the minimum had been reached. I don't know if that is still the case. The higher rated banded tournaments can sit around for weeks as higher rated players tend to play fewer games such that I don't think it's necessary to create a top group for every set made. I've felt that all the tournaments on this site seem to fill much slower than they used to a couple of years ago. If the tournament entry is full it's started within hours.
I'm a new suscriber and have two questions about Tournaments:
1. What is the meaning of the two numbers separated by a slash (entrants column) when they are green?
2. It is necessary to complete the participants for a tournament to start or it may start with a lower number?
Thanks in advance.
If you click on any tournament it will show the minimum number of entrants required before it can start.
That doesn't mean the tournament will start when the minimum is reached but if there's no more entrants within a certain time it may do.
By clicking on the tournament doesn't mean you have to enter it.
