Why aren't other players' results displayed?
At the end of the deal, players have only access to their own result on the deal, i.e. contract played, result, score and rank.
Other players' results are displayed only when the tournament is over.
How are the deals of a tournament dealt?
The number of deals generated for a tournament is higher than the number of deals played so that all players won't play the same deals and not in the same order.
Are non-played deals included in the score displayed?
The average displayed takes into account results on deals played. Only played deals are taken into account. Any non-played deal at the end of the tournament will get a score of 0%.
