Just food for thought
Interesting idea. You'd only pair up people asking for a random partner, I guess. Some do not want to play doubles.

Re: Ask the board Thread

Question - a player committed 6PM on the last day of entry. Deadline 6PM. Is he a late entry or not? Not sure if it's before 6PM or not.

Yes.

You will have to withdraw from Vicenza if you either 1) qualify for RG directly, or 2) stay on in the hope of getting a LL spot. If you are on the LL list for a MD spot but don't want to risk it (normally very few LLs enter), say "out" in the RG thread.

Yes, they would commit in the following fashion:

"In singles

Doubles with Random"

Assuming there is no player named "Random", the manager would add this person to a pool of players to be randomly paired up at the time of the draws being made.
Just an idea... I'm sure a bit of specifications or tweaking will be necessary when I suggest this in December.

That's kind of why I asked. I'm managing Nottingham next week, which has a sunday start. So I could technically wait until after saturday's RG play.

But this is a lot easier

Re: Ask the board Thread

Not to be a pain ( because it's really not a big deal)

But if the tournament director posts the OOP. But says to send to someone else. And you still send it to the Tournament Director, it should count. Because he is in fact running the tournament.
