Yes, they're all double RRs. It's actually stated in the FAQ under the tournamment section.

You're right, it's never wrong to include more information (you might want to make a suggestion on the suggestions/improvements forum), but I notice (from your homepage) that you've been on the site for five years. No offence, but I'm somewhat surprised that you haven't figured this out by now.

It's the "all play all" thing that throws me. A single RR is a single RR. All the RRs here appear to be double RRs. You should state that. It's never wrong to include more information.

The information is already there, sort of. It always gives the number of players in a tournament, for example "Ten player all play all." If there are ten players and you are one of them, you'll have nine opponents. "All play alls" are actually double round-robins, so you simply multiply the number of opponents (9 in the previous example) times two (9x2=18) to get the number of games you'll have to play.

The info is there, you just have to read it (and do a little math)!

In my opinion the tournament registration pages should list the number of games for each event. It is disconcerting to join a tournament and discover suddenly that it involves 20 games!!
