To all would-be tournament players:
I'd like to make the following plea. If you're going to sign up for a tournament, please be prepared to play all of your games all the way through. It's very unfair to the others in the tournament if one person, after playing some of their games, decides to stop playing the rest and so some players get essentially free Time Out wins, while other players had to fight for theirs (and maybe even lose theirs.) It also penalizes people who don't take a long time to play their games.
I just wanted to bring this up because I think it's an important issue if there is to be fair tournament play.
