    Update note: It would be a nice touch if organisers posted results of posted tournaments.

    1. Who is running the event (organisation, society etc.)
    2. The purpose of the event (charity, commercial etc.)
    3. Date and Location of event
    4. Registration and Start time of event.
    5. Any prerequisites (member of club, society etc)

    8. Cost of entry and any subsequent rebuys/top-ups etc.

    13. Starting Chips
    14. Rebuy and Top-up chip amounts.

    18. Are there going to be dealers - and their level of skill
    19. Will there be a documented list of rules
    20. Is there a tournament director
    21. How are disputes handled - who has final say.
    22. Are there any cash games offered, if so, please outline the rake for each limit offered.

    This list may seem long but if you haven't got the answers then there is a question mark over the professionalism of your tournie.



    In addition to the information contained above, anyone availing of this board to promote their tournaments are expected to answer all questions that are relevant, civil and politely put to them regarding their tournaments and the club policies in general.

    OK, I have one thing to add to this.

    Once all the above are followed, people posting unhelpful comments are not allowed. If you think the reg fee is too high then don't attend. Posting rubbish comments on events where costs to the players are clearly outlined are unhelpful. These comments will be deleted and a warning given. Repeat offences will get a ban at the moderators discretion.
