i have yet to play a usta tournament and am not sure what type of tournament i should play in. i guess i'm about a 4.0 to 4.5 player but there aren't many tournaments near me that have ntrp tournaments. i've noticed that some of the tournaments will say 3.0 - 4.5. does this mean that all the people within that range will play against each other or that there will be separate brackets for each rating? one last thing i was wondering was what the level range for open tournaments were and whether or not i should try competing in them. Thanks in advance.
