Late Policy for All Games

Late Policy for All Games

Per the World Tavern Poker TD Guide, all TD's are expected to adhere to our Late Policy.

Directly from the Guide:

At all WTP venues, players arriving late can only take a seat if they arrive within 30 minutes of the scheduled start time of the tournament. This means if the scheduled start time is 7:00pm, a player has until 7:30pm to be seated. All WTP venues and TD's are expected to adhere to this policy. The player must be in the building and checking in with the TD within 30 minutes of the game starting in order to play in that game.

This policy is in effect for ALL tournaments - including Championship games - regardless of how long your game lasts.
