    Tournament next round can start indeed when the outcome of games in progress does not affect the outcome of a group.
    But I am not sure if it is automatic, or that the admins still have to push the button, but that could explain a delay.
    Also I notice that it is a draw in that group. Maybe the system does not handle that correctly?

    So ..eh.. actually I don't know.

    thanks, hopefully the problem will fix itself when their game ends and take us to round 2

    Tournaments only progress onto the next round once ALL games have been completed in the current round.
    Different tournaments have different ways of working out who is going to meet who in the next round based on ratings, group size, number of 'winners' and stuff, so (I think) that someone has to intervene to kick the next round into being active.

    All the tournaments I've been in have had a bit of a lag in starting new rounds.

    Actually this isn't true anymore. The second round of Tournament 1840 has just started, even though two of the games in round 1 aren't finished yet (but the groups are decided). Unfortunate for me, I had hoped the round wouldn't start until I am back from holidays...
