Rules in a Tournament are important. There will always be subjectivity when deciding on if someone broke a Rule or not especially in ingame play.

I know people know each other for a long time now, but in this tournament it doesn't matter keep personal grudges out of it please.
There will be 2 or 4 referees depending on who wants to do that. They will first decide and if their decision is 50/50 my decision on that will be final. In the first place, we will be putting into application the general principle of law
