Chess.com U1200 Tournament Update

Some games are beginning to wrap up in the Chess.com U1200 Annual Tournament. Three of my games have finished, leaving me with a current score of 1-2-0, which I think is ok considering that this is my first tournament. However, there is a difficult element in this tournament that I believe is a negative side-effect of online tournaments: participants well outside of the ratings cap. The current person in the lead has an ELO approximately 100+ points higher than the rest of us participating in the tournament. That has not lent itself well to myself and the other participants. Still, the tournament continues and it looks as though it may come to a conclusion late next week.
