Publication and management of tournaments
BEFORE THE TOURNAMENT
Create the tournament
Some fields are mandatory, others are optional.
It is possible to define the tournament as a template, so that it can be reused without having to fill in all the fields again.
It is possible to reserve places which will be deducted from the free places.
Publish the tournament (visible to the players)
It is possible to define the date and time of publication, as well as to define the moment of opening of the registrations. This is particularly useful in these times of corona disruption as you can publish your tournaments (which may be moved) without players being able to register.
It is possible to cancel the publication of a tournament, but the registered players remain.
ON TOURNAMENT DAY
The tournament director check-in players when they pay their entry fee.
A non-registered player can be added. He can be searched by his name (only by his e-mail if he is not yet one of your players). If the player does not have a Check-Raise account, you must create one with him or ask him to create one. For accurate statistics it is mandatory that all players have a Check-Raise account. In addition, the law requires player tracking.
Reserved places must be replaced by real players.
If you have allowed rebuys, they must be entered at each rebuy.
When you are no longer accepting players and the rebuy period is over, the tournament can be closed. All players who participate in the tournament are registered, as well as their rebuys. There can be no more reserved places.
AFTER THE TOURNAMENT
In order for your tournament to appear in your statistics, it must be archived. The tournament will no longer be directly visible, but can be consulted by opening the archives.
MODIFY / CANCEL
Until archiving, it is possible to modify the tournament fields. But if the tournament is already published, according to their settings, players will be notified by e-mail of any changes.
In case of error, the different functions (publish, check-in, check-out, archive) are reversible.
At any time you can export a tournament. This can be the list of players, their contact details and the tournament details.
A “.csv” function allows you to export the list of players in order to import them into, for example, “The Tournament Director”.
