I tried to register for #6654 Express. Got a message
"This is a private tournament. It is not open to the public. Please contact the tourney host for details."

Then I realized it was for web-version members only. Pout :(
Despite my tries, I always get lost in the web version. Is anyone else as bad at it as I am?

I am getting blocked "historical Tourney Completion Percentage is too low for this tourney" I may have lost connection a few times but I am not sure what percentage you have to have to register for this.

I think the percentage is 75%, you can see your own percentage by looking at your own profile using the Web-Interface.
Most likely you did not play 10 tourneys within the last 30 days and your percentage is undefined.

I'm glad you enjoy the free Express tourneys. :) They are identical to the pay express, except for 2 things.
1) Free instead of $0.25 cost, and so no prizes.
2) You need to be using new version of BBO to play them.

I'll give you a couple free entries to the paid version so you can see if that's something you'd like in the future. Unlikely to add more free versions of this tournament - it already has more free versions than the other paid tournaments.

Americans and Turkish BBOers can also join a free bigger version of Express called the "GEO" tournament every day at a peak time for each country. (Sorry everyone else, I tried it out with 2 other slightly smaller countries and nobody joined!)

To keep from overloading our robot servers.

We run them every 10-20 minutes, so if one of them fills up you can easily play in the next one.

100 what? The entry limit is 80. When it reaches that, it won't allow any more users to register.

It does however continue to offer them a "register" button, and then make a theatrical refusal when they try B-)

Yep, really heartbreaking, tragic, vexatious, sad, irritating etc etc etc sound like a whining desperate poodle

I have the same problem: I am getting blocked "historical Tourney Completion Percentage is too low for this tourney" . I mostly play as sub because my completion percentage says "UNKNOWN". It doesn't matter how many times I sub, it never changes. What is wrong?

You only have 6 tourneys that count in our records. TCR isn't calculated until you have 10 tourneys in a 60 day period.

I play in lots of tournaments, but in my profile it says my percentage is undefined??

Daylong tournaments don't count for calculating TCR.

Sorry, I may have been confusing you with someone else who was also asking about this.

Team matches don't count, either. You have 7 tourneys that count. I'll send you the list of them in a private message.
