NO. All the pools for a particular game will be running at the same time. The schedule will be posted on the website, facebook page, and the appropriate SRK thread, and will have a copy onsite. You really have no excuse. When your name is called, you have only five(5) minutes to report to your match. Failure to appear after those 5 minutes will result in a loss. Absolutely no exceptions! And no crying about it!
