This has happened a lot this year. If the tournament organizers and refs decide to “add” a rule or “create another clause” to a rule, does that automatically override your rulings or what the game manual says regarding what they “added” or “changed”?
What should I do if the tournament organizer/refs do not want to look at the game manual, or even your specific rulings? This has happened multiple times this year, and I want to get this cleared up. It is frustrating when the refs won’t follow the game manual or your rulings.
You can always politely ask the referees and/or tournament organizers to review the rule/Q&A in question. If they are not amiable to this, you should bring your concern to the RECF representative for the region.
