Ugh, Hit Start Tournament by mistake!

I managed to hit “Start Tournament” by mistake for a daily tournament I created. There were 5 players signed up out of a 100 but that was enough to create one group. Is there a way to reset the tourney without messing people up?

There should really be a confirm button to avoid this kind of thing. Annoying!

In the TD tools section, there should be a link for editing the tournament parameters.

Unfortunately now there is only "Announcements" and "Manager Players" in the TD tool bar. 

Can a chess.com staff member reset the tourney for me? Here is the tourney link : https://www.chess.com/tournament/d4-queens-pawn-opening

You would have to send an email to support: support@chess.com

Thanks, I created a support ticket. I’ll follow up on how it gets resolved or not.

No response from chess.com. No worries. Lesson learnt. 

I recreated the tournament: https://www.chess.com/tournament/practice-your-d4-defenses

Will make sure to NOT hit the start button by mistake happy.png
