- Note that players who check in late, but before the end of Round 1, might still be denied participation depending on the state of the tournament (number of participants, etc.)
- If a player is not seated at their table when a round starts, they will be considered as having lost the match.
※ In that case, if by the end of that round that player has not expressed their intent to keep playing, they will be considered as having dropped from the event.
