OFFICIAL WIZARD ONLINE TOURNAMENT RULES (Updated May 14, 2020.) *Further editing may be required due to the new 2020 program.

Basics
* OFFICIAL WIZARD ONLINE TOURNAMENT RULES
Any deviations to these rules must be sanctioned by Wizard Cards International Inc.

1. All online tournaments will be sanctioned by Wizard Cards International Inc.
2. Official tournaments must consist of a minimum of 12 entrants. (No minimum for Invitational Tournaments)

Registration

1. The date of each tournament will be announced at least 2 days prior to the first game.
2. The date will be posted on the Wizard website.
3. To be eligible for the tournament a person must be registered as a Wizard member and must register for the tournament as prescribed in the announcement. (location must be provided)
4. Any information requested by the tournament director must be provided by the applicant.
5. Tournament directors may refuse an entrant if they feel that the person would be deleterious to the tournament.
6. Tournament directors will decide on the placement of players into playing groups and the appointment of a host for each game.
7. An early registration will assure a player of a choice table placement should it be necessary to start with tables that have an unequal number of players.
8. Players who register after the close of registration are Standby players. Tournament directors will decide when and if a standby player should participate.

Rules of Play

1. The Official Wizard Rules are in force for tournament play.
2. The Canadian Rule will be in force for all games.
3. Standard online game procedures are in force.
4. Any modifications to the above must be sanctioned by the Tournament Directors.

Advancement
1. The final round of each tournament may consist of 3-4-5 or 6 players.
2. In the event of a tie score tie-breakers will be decided as follows for regular bid games: 1st Tie Breaker - The player with the fewest "Breaks" (set bids) during the game shall advance to the next round. If the players have an equal number of "Breaks", the player that was trailing in score before the tie resulted shall advance to the next round (this rule discourages the leaders to play for a "Tie" game). This rule does not apply to the Final Table round of play.

3. For Hidden Bid games and Delayed Reveal Bid Games the sequence for breaking ties is as follows:
(a) Player with fewest breaks advances.
(b) Player with most recent break is eliminated. If tied this rule repeats itself.
(c) player who was behind before the most recent tie score advances.
(d) Player who bid and made the highest bid advances.

* Ties remain ties in the Final Table round of play.
4. No player is allowed to play under 2 different names in the same game.
In the event that such a situation arises the player may select which "username" will continue while the other will step aside in favor of the next eligible player.

Irregularities

1. If any error or irregularity is perceived to have occurred during the course of a game the player must immediately bring it to the attention of the tournament director.
If all players agree a game may be restarted at any time. (i.e. A new game)
The decision to postpone or continue a tournament at a later time is solely up to the Director whose decision is final. His decision may be based on a vote by the players.
Regardless of the stated rules situations may arise which are not fully covered or which render the rules unfair due to unique circumstances. At such times it will be the Director's responsibility to provide the fairest solution possible based on the best information available.

All disputes or questions involving any aspect of the tournament or play shall be referred to the tournament director whose decision is final. The Director may change his decision at a later time if new information is brought forward that he deems to change the dynamics. Any appeal with new information must be made to the Director.

TRIAD
In 2020 the TRIAD was abolished.

Aliases:
Aliases are permitted. Their proper use is dependent upon the integrity of the members.
The only official restrictions on the use of aliases are:
1. An alias must not be used with the intent of lowering the score of another player.
2. For invitational tournaments such as the monthly "Top 10 Tournament," each participant must be the person who earned entry into the event.
3. No one person can enter any online tournament more than once.

Generic Rule: "DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU"

** Rules relating specifically to HIDDEN BID and DELAYED REVEAL BID are shown in GREEN above.

The Role of the DIRECTOR
The decision to postpone or continue a tournament at a later time is solely up to the Director whose decision is final. His decision may be based on a vote by the players.
Regardless of the stated rules situations may arise which are not fully covered or which render the rules unfair due to unique circumstances. At such times it will be the Director's responsibility to provide the fairest solution possible based on the best information available.
All disputes or questions involving any aspect of the tournament or play shall be referred to the tournament director whose decision is final. The Director may change his decision at a later time if new information is brought forward that he deems to change the dynamics. Any appeal with new information must be made to the Director.
The Directors give their time freely and are critical for the ongoing success of the online tournaments. The reason for making the Director's decision final was to avoid second-guessing.
Nevertheless, the Directors must adhere to the rules as written. When situations arise that are not clearly covered by the rules the Director is free to make a judgment call.
