A moment of sympathy for Jim Egerton. He comes all the way to Las Vegas to play chess. He has to schedule a bye for Sunday evening to catch his plane back. His opponent Sunday morning never showed up. Not a very chess eventful day for Jim.
In multiple-section events, there will usually be someone else in another section with a similar problem. So if one seeks out the TD, then one might be able to play a game (though probably not at the original time control; it takes one hour to claim the forfeit).
