Please refer to Help Topic 2102 for clarification of this rule.
Per the help topic:
Refusal to start a tournament match is considered intentional delay: the time-out clock will be started and the player warned that s/he is subject to immediate DQ. If the player then starts the match after being warned, the TD will stop the clock and announce "X minutes used". If the player still refuses to start the match promptly after having been warned, the penalty is immediate Match DQ, and the player will be noted.
Understand, refusal to start a tournament match, can be as simple as not going to table when invited, requested or asked.
