Hi, I am new to playing in BBO. I was looking at my tournament completion rate and it seems low 83. I have not left any tournaments. What on earth is happening? I wish I understood better. Can someone tell me what is going on please?

When your TCR was calculated yesterday morning, you had played in 14 tourneys and finished 12 of them. The two tourneys you didn't finish were Express tourneys on March 31 and April 4.

I think people don't realize that being kicked out of an Express tourney because you don't play fast enough counts as leaving. Both the last two posts were from people who left express torneys.

I have now played in 21 tournaments, mostly as a sub. My completion rate is still unknown.
I always wait until the tournament is over.
"When you finish the last board, if you leave the tourney or logout without waiting for BBO to move you into the lobby itself, the server thinks you bailed and counts it against you"
I just saw this comment. The screen turns white and nothing happens, so I return or log off. Is this counting against me?
Wish I had known about that "rule" before playing as a sub!!!
Any way to correct it??
Dave

I only see 10 tourneys in your history. Subbing doesn't count negatively or positively towards TCR.

If you get the blank screen or list of tables that are still playing at the end of the tourney you've been removed cleanly.

i'm used not to leave torunaments i've joined, but sometimes (expecially in match teams) some players leave suddenly (normally after a wrong bid...) and nobody joins in for many minutes, so normally after 4-5 minutes i tend to leave too. Also sometimes i lose connection or have slow conn so that i'm automatically expelled by the software.
It seems to me that in both cases my TCR is decreased but that seems a bit unfair from my pov...

Team games aren't included when calculating TCR.

If you're in a tournament and someone leaves, the TD should replace them with a substitute.

If you lose your connection, that's supposed to reduce your TCR. The TCR is intended to be an estimate of how likely you are to complete the tournament, versus leaving and requiring the TD to replace you. It's not a punishment for quitting, so it doesn't matter whether you leave intentionally or get disconnected. If you're disconnected frequently, you should have a low TCR.

Getting kicked out of an Express tournament because you don't bid or play in time also reduces your TCR. 4 of the 7 tournaments that you left in the past 2 months were Express.

Hello Admin, I need your help :) my tournament completion rate is unknown all the time and I don't understand why? I played a lot of free daylong tournaments (maybe it happened that it wasn't finished) but I played a lot and finish them. I don't like to quit before finish. Tell me exactly for now what can I do to proper my situation? How many of them should I play (that is only 1 free daylong tournament a day) I am playing so many days and waiting something will happen with my tournament completion rate. I'm so upset I can't play for instance express automated fun. Please help!

Daylong tournaments aren't used in calculating TCR. Only human tournaments and robot duplicates.

We only update your TCR when you've played at least 10 tourneys in the preceding 60 days. Being removed as a substitute doesn't count against you.

The last time you met the criteria to update your TCR was September 28. You'd played 23 tourneys, and left 4 of them, which is 17%. They were in mid-August: 1 speedball, 2 free automated fun, and 1 Geo - USA.

In the speedball you were a substitute, but it looks like you left on your own after playing 2 boards, because you weren't replaced by the original player.

You dropped out of 3 Shandon Park Bridge Club tourneys in the past 2 months (Feb 18, Mar 25, Apr 1).
