    If I am running a tournament, am I within my rights to withdraw a player who has no shot of advancing, and is holding up the tournament?

    See

    I am watching Methos...he is the only one left with games, is in losing positions in enough games that he has really no shot, and we have been waiting three weeks now. I have asked him politely to speed it up a bit, since we are waiting for him.

    No - TDs can't do that.

    In any case, the player currently in last place has enough games in hand to win the group.

    But we do have the ABILITY...are you saying that IN THIS CASE, I shouldn't exercize that yet, I would agree...but what if he is mathematically eliminated?

    I thought TDs were only able to remove players BETWEEN rounds - not when they had games in progress. (See numbers-of-tournaments).

    Perhaps you are right...I have never tried. I assumed since there is the withdraw player link, that it would work.
