Default Self-Destruct Button in tournaments

Situation is that player won game one. Then proceeds to side in SDB then game 2 manages to get it off resulting in a draw. Does that mean that since player one won game one and game two was a tie, he wins total? win since it's best 2/3 and player two can no longer win two games? If not what exactly happens?

In a draw, no one wins.

You're assuming they get a win each after Round 2.

wut? Where did the come from? o_o

They play a third round, a fourth round, whatever, as long as round time permits, until a player gets TWO legitimate wins.

Read up the policies. They explain what to do when time is over.

A match isn't technically best of 3, it's play until one player gets 2 wins or time is called.

KDE's Yu-Gi-Oh! Tournament policy makes it clear that the default round length for ALL parts of an official event is 40 minutes.

The only difference between Matches in Swiss and Single-Elimination rounds is that the latter can not end in a draw. They can go to time, and they can be more than 3 games.

C. Time Limits
Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG rounds are 40 minutes in length at both Tier 1 and Tier 2 events. For certain events like Yu-Gi-Oh!
Championship Series, National Championships, etc., round lengths may be adjusted at the discretion of the Tournament
Organizer, but only if it advertised before the start of the event.
For single-elimination playoff rounds, the time limit may be adjusted by the Head Judge or Tournament Organizer, but
only if announced before the start of the elimination rounds.

I might have been thinking of locals, whatever I had down was wrong.
