If the number of players in the qualifying group is 7, AI players will be added so that the number of players will be 8.
If the number of players in the qualifying group is 7, AI players should be placed so that there are 8 players in the group.
In the first round, all players must end game when the top 4 or more are decided.
(In the case of 8 tables, the top 4 players will advance to the second round, and in the case of 6 tables, some of the 5th and 6th players will advance to the second round.)

Screenshots of the game results will be uploaded to Tonamel's chat room by someone who can respond immediately. Please cooperate with us.
⇒You can also report your ranking when you submit your results.
If the participants are not all present, they should report to the administration.
The match will start at the signal of the management.
If there are multiple players with the same ranking, a random or arbitrary player will be selected to advance to the finals or the second round. (This is because there are many cases where there is a change in the results notation and it takes a long time to select a player, resulting in a delay in the tournament progress and the selected player not showing up for the next match.)
