Disqualification in Round 12
During Round 14 of the StarCityGames.com Invitational, competitor Aaron Schwartz was disqualified for DCI Number Fraud. Mr. Schwartz was found to have participated in the event by falsely claiming another player's qualification. Below is a statement from Head Judge of the event Toby Elliott:
"Playing under another player's DCI number undermines the purpose of sanctioned play, as well as all the hard work and excellence displayed by the players who legitimately qualified for the Invitational. Even though Mr. Schwartz had already dropped from the tournament, we have disqualified him retroactively, as this behavior can not be tolerated."
