Seems pretty unfair to have to be timed out because a player does not show in a pair tourney and a sub cannot be found...
I played in olympics and thought it would be a pretty fair shot at 1st 2nd or 3rd, but as I look at it all, the pairs tourneys have players registered that have no stake in it and then are 'no shows', and to boot there are not enough people in room to sub.
I am thinking that one possible solution is that pairs tourneys be made SS and there is a better chance of all being there to play.
Another thing that is totally 'NOT HELPFUL' is donations in a partner tourney...
Please consider this to be fair to all.
Maybe some revisions can be considered in future tourenys.
