Once the late entry fee goes into effect at midnight, 72 hours before the tournament, no refunds will be provided for any reason to players who need to drop out of the tournament.Otherwise, our standard refund policy remains the same: Players who drop out of the tournament before the late entry fee goes into effect can have a credit for the full amount of the registration fee to be used towards any future tournament. Players who want the refund to go to their credit card can have the refund minus a $10 registration fee.
