Mmmmm.... sorry, but if you want to ask the TO's of the different Satellite Tournaments, please send them a Private Message. The moment the matter was posted publicly, the OP assumed the consequences of that, which include people deciding that he protested too late, and that it was not possible, or fair, to change the result. The truth is that even asking people from CB to change the invitation from one player to another is asking them to sort a mess made by others, and their answer would be, regardless of which "side" they choose, to remove the Satellite's system altogether, or to downgrade it to a simple "the winner gets a seat in the Interplanetario, unless he was already on the accepted list, in which case the 2nd one gets it". In short: every one of us have a "personal responsibility", which in this case means to help the other player counting points (I always say "I think I am in Retreat, let's stop for a moment while I check"), orders, or whatever. Remember, your reactive turn includes you helping the other player to play! Not on decisions or the like, but rules and ARO's. THAT is included in being gentlemanly, and also in having a backup (more than once I have said my Target Number without applying negatives, for example, and my opponent has corrected me). My personal opinion? Asking 3 times is not enough to say "I did what I could, the Organization failed me". Asking to count the dead points WOULD have, and I don't understand why he just rolled with getting the same response several times if he wasn't happy with the answer. So, if I were a TO, I'd say to you the same thing @Leigabar said: once the tournament has finished, it's done. It's hard, yes, but that how things are, because if the things were to re-winded, then I could present you an hypothetical case of the loser of a high stakes tournament claiming after the end that his rival did this or that, and turning it into a "he says, he says". The problem is that not always you can have a bilingual judge for the last round, devoted to only the finals table. And they finished with 30 mins to spare, so there was literally no pressure to deliver the results. EDIT: As an aside, Leibarg WAS ALREADY IN the accepted list for the Interplanetario. So even less reason to doubt him.
