If you are placed on the waiting list and a position opens in the field due to a cancellation PRIOR TO the posted close of registration, we will fill that position with the first player on the waiting list, regardless of flight, moving down the list as more cancellations occur. Because pairings are set once registration closes, if a position opens in the field due to a cancellation AFTER the posted close of registration, we will fill that position with the player highest on the waiting list whose flight best fills the needs of the pairings. This will allow us the best opportunity to provide pairings that only include players within the same flight. A player taken from the waiting list and added to the tournament field will be notified via email to confirm entry and his/her credit card will be charged the full cost of the tournament’s entry fee at this time. At no point should any player on the waiting list assume he/she has been added to the tournament field without having received email confirmation.
For Example: If the tournament registration has closed and there is a cancellation by a Hogan player who was previously slotted in a threesome of all Hogan players, we will fill that position with the Hogan player highest on the waiting list, regardless of if other non-Hogan players are ahead of that player on the waiting list.
