All-stars earned during tournaments

All-star shots earned during tournaments are recorded and awarded to the players. The way the website works is that there are no "games" being played on a tournament night so there is no way to enter all-star points for that night. In order to award the all-star points we will enter them into the players previous week results. So all-star points earned last night at the Triples Blind Draw have been entered into the night of Nov 1st - the last team play night.
