Pre-Tournament VIP Express Check-in. Attendance at the WWBT Check In and pre-tournament virtual meeting is mandatory. However, WWBT realizes that circumstances may arise that prevent contestants from attending. In these cases, a contestant can select the VIP Express Check-in by paying the VIP amount of $35.00. 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.
