Pre-Tournament VIP Express Check-in. Attendance at the WWBT registration and pre-tournament meeting is mandatory. However, WWBT realizes that circumstances may arise that prevent contestants from attending the mandatory meeting. In these cases, a contestant can select the VIP Express Check-in for the meeting by paying the VIP amount of $75.00. This is a per-event designation and must be approved by WWBT officials. Pre-tournament Express Check-in must be paid for no later than 24 hours prior to the tournament meeting.
