    I am looking to check out a GE prelease tournament tomorrow. It starts at 10 am. How long do these usually last? Thanks.

    It depends on how many players, if there are things like drawings between rounds, if there is a lunch break, etc. Most are usually in the 3 to 5 hour range. We did one today in Eugene OR with 49 players that started at noon and ended around 5:00 PM.

    The one in Rockford was probably in the long end of things. 72 players in the main event. We started around 12:15, and ended probably around 4:30-5:00. That was reducing the time limit to 20 minutes, but that's still pretty good for a Limited event.

    Most places will give 30 minutes for deck construction, plus 30 minutes per round. Assume about 10-15 minutes between each round for bookkeeping. Most Pres will have in the range of 30-40, so 4 rounds is about average.
