Will the tournament that starts today be affected by the power failure up there?

Nope. They've already started play at 11AM today. Mr. Min, the owner, called me and told me he needed me to show up to help out. He told me they had something like 90 players I think.

I think the tournament will proceed. It might be necessary to give players a bit more time to show up and maybe schedule more matches for the weekend. They might already have power back and could run the event in two days although it would probably run quite late. They could also shorten the races to 9 which would help.

It's supposed to be a 64 player maximum field so some of the problems due to field size are their own doing. There could be a serious effect on fan attendance due to difficulties with transportation.

Power is on. AC is running. Tables are good. Last set of matches started at about 1:30 - 2AM.
