Hope I’m not opening a can of worms here, but I wanted to open a discussion on the impact of the 60-day event submission window for IFPA events.
Since players in a given event often participate in many events in the interim period between the first event and subsequent results submission, possibly 2 months later, it seems like the results of those “interim” tournaments could be substantially impacted by the timing of the submission. Questions that come to mind:
- Are results retroactively adjusted based on submissions for tourneys that took place prior to a given event but not submitted until after? (I’m guessing no?)
- Is there any consideration of shortening the submission window to mitigate the impact of these overlapped results?
If this is well-covered ground here or elsewhere, forgive me.
