BROY HOSTING TD RULES:
The BROY Admin will give the hosting TDs their pairings in chat. For example:
Sweett - Team 1 - JHF vs. Neverest Euchre.
From that, the hosting TD will open their tourney page so they can see who to invite.
When directed to start, the hosting TDs will put their pairings in the lobby chat. Pairings should be as follows:
JHF_Team1 Vs. Neverest_Team2.
Hosting TDs will make their table(s) and invite the players. The first team in all pairings has the choice of seats first.
Tables are to be as follows:
For Reg BROY and the BOS: Rated STD and Protected with kibitz off.
For BACKASSWARDS: UNrated STD and Protected with kibitz off.
Once all are seated, the hosting TD will spam the game rules and check kibitz. Play is not to begin until all kibs are off. Hosting TDs must encourage steady play and time if necessary. Please let the BROY Admin know of all timers and those involved.
Timers for freezes, mias, etc is 5 minutes. Subs need to be in place before the 5 minutes is up. Before a sub can sit, he/she must be approved by the BROY Admin - keep must be a member of the BROY. Once subs begin, they must finish the tourney, even if the original player returns.
Fast play is expected. If a player is playing slow, please check their pings. If their ping is bad, let the others playing know. If the ping is good, issue a warning and let them know they are in jeopardy of being disqualified if they don't speed up. Please let the Admin and fellow hosting TDs know if warnings are given.
Once the table(s) have finished, the hosting TD should post the winner(s) in the lobby and thank the losing team(s) for playing. The winners should also be posted in the conference chat.
No loners on nine. If someone goes alone on nine, skip the deal around back to the dealer. If the dealer is the one that makes the mistake skip only once. If a team were to make this mistake for a 2nd time during the entire tournament they will be dq'd.
The only exception to going alone on 9 is in BACKASSWARDS. You are allowed to go alone on 8 and 9 in this game only.
It is your responsibility to watch the tables you have been assigned. Any issues should be reported to BROY Admin immediately.
