Each tournament hosted on Tabroom has it's own set of public pages, which you can use to view the invitation, entries, judges, pairings, etc.

First, you must access the tournament you're interested in. This is usually done by clicking the name of the tournament from one of the Calendars, whether the main calendar on the homepage, a circuit-specific calendar, or your personalized calendar of upcoming tournaments visible when you first log in to your account.

If you are accessing the tournament from your "Upcoming Tournaments" list, you can also click the "Register" button next to a tournament to jump straight to your school's registration.

After clicking on a tournament, you will be taken to the main information page for that tournament:

You will see a series of tabs with information about the tournament:

You can get information on each of these tabs below.


The Invite tab will frequently have information about the tournament, dates and deadlines, hotel info, etc. If the tournament director has not pasted that information in, you should also look in the sidebar to see if there is a downloadable invitation:

The Entries tab will let you see all current entries in the tournament, including information about a waitlist, if applicable. First, select the event you're interested in on the right, and you will see the list of entries:

The Judges tab has the list of judges entered for each event. You can also click the "<Event> Paradigms" link on the right for a page with all the paradigms for that event combined in one place, or use the "PDF" link to get the same thing in a downloadable/printable format:

Clicking on a judge will take you to their judge record for the tournament. You can also access a judge's record by clicking their name directly from the pairing. From this page, you can see how they've voted, along with links to their full judging record and the option to follow them for Live Updates:
