    Why do they bump up players who are boarder line above their level in team and let clear and obvious underrated players play tournaments?
    Does anyone know?

    You can be a high 4.5 and play tournaments as a 4.0 as long as you want but if you are a 4.0 to 4.25 and play team you might get bumped to 4.5 so fast it can make your head spin?

    Maybe because you play so many more matches in leagues than you do in tournaments. Some people play in as many as a half-dozen leagues a year - that's maybe 40 - 60 matches? If you played a half-dozen tournaments you might only play 18 - 20 matches unless you do really well.

    Regardless, though, I know several guys that were bumped up based on tournament play only.
