Hi. I am playing in my first tournament and it says it's finished!! How can that be when i still have about 16 games that are just now in their final stages with several wins just a few moves away??? I have run out of time in ZERO games, so how can it be closed just because the winner is calculable?? What about the other rankings??? Do I finish the games I have on the board?? Etc! I should have finished about fourth in this tourn. Ahh Maybe as bad as sixth🙂
Relax. You still get to play out the games. The final table will still update as results come in. It just means that the winner of the tournament has been established. remshalden has 113 points. The most anyone else (including you) can score is 111.
The reason this calculation is made is so that the winner can be declared before all the games have been played out. Its particularly useful in earlier rounds, because subsequent rounds can begin long before all the games have finished. It helps speed up tournaments considerably.
