||How Do Yahoo Tournaments Work?
Automatic Pairing and Reporting
In a Single Elimination Tournament, all of the pairing and the win/loss
are automatically reported. If you win a game, you are automatically
seeded to the next round to play against the next opponent. If there
are openings in the tournament brackets, certain players will receive
a "bye," meaning they have no game in that round.
* Please check back to the Tournament Sign Up page to view
the latest brackets.*
The next round begins when all games are completed or when the maximum
round time has expired. When the round time expires and there are
unfinished games a winner from those games is randomly chosen to
advance. Most games have a 15 minute maximum round length. Exceptions
are Chess and Pool which are 20 minutes, and Go, Literati, and Backgammon
which are 30 minutes.
Automatic Tables Invite
In the start of a new round, players will be automatically invited
to the proper table with a message that says, "You have a scheduled
game at table X. Would you like to join?" Clicking on "Yes"
will automatically sit you in the table with your scheduled opponent.
Only games played in these invited tables will be reported to the
standings system. Once a game is over, you should exit that table
and wait for a new table invite in the next round
* We recommend that you do not Create Tables before the automatic
table invite as there is a chance that you might miss the invite
and thus lose the round.*
If your opponent is a no-show, you can force a forfeit on your opponent.
You will automatically win and advance to the next round after the
game time expires. In order to force a forfeit, make sure it is
your opponent's turn and wait 3-5 minutes.
Trophies that can be seen in the player's profile page are awarded
to the winners of Official Yahoo! Tournaments.
