    I would like to suggest that RHP move on to the next round of a tournament once a clear winner in each group has been decided. Tournaments goes on forever here because of one game that will not impact the tournament is not moving until the last possible momment on every move. for example if the leading score in a group is 55 and the max possible points for the #2 guy is 54 then that group is decided (but the other games are still allowed to continue without holding up the tournament). I think this will also help clear up server space maybe I am wrong what do you guys think?

    well that is a annoying tournament game but I am talking about groups where no one in the group can match the leaders score in that group. although the 1400 is down a chess set he could still win be timeout in a few months due to life situations. Sorry that you guys have to wait.

    no the server waits until all games in every group is completed before moving on to the next round.

    I dunno. I've been in exactly one tourney and the second round games started well before the remaining, non-impactful, first round games were completed. In fact, I'm *still* completing a few of them.
