Or is therte any other possibility to deal with that problem? Maybe mix up with someone who's partner didn't send picks?
For Kazan I allowed abollo's partner to link up with somebody else on the Sunday, which was after the draw had been made. This was a special case because the crisis came suddenly.
Now everybody knows the situation, so the normal rules will apply. You will have to commit with a new partner before 6.00 p.m. CET on Friday. I applaud your wish to give abollo as long as possible to return, but of course the longer you wait the more difficult it will be for you to find someone else.
