How do you handle those who deadbeat during a tournament? Two scenarios:
1: Someone deadbeats ALL their games. The immediate response is easy, replace them with a reserve or byes. No HUGE problem, but some annoyance.

Hey I noticed that you missed some turns last time.........what's the deal? Will you be able to fully commit to this tournament.......if not, please consider removing your name from the sign up list ......etc.

Another idea is to put a restriction on your tournament, e.g. "Only those with 99% turns taken may sign-up" this would lower the likelyhood of getting some potential deadbeaters in your tournament.
