I'm with Jim.

I'm dead money and I know it. But I'm not going to become more likely to win tournaments by avoiding them. For now I'm paying for the fun and experience.

That being said, I would also play in any tournament if I was the worst player because I have nothing to lose (other than my entry), and can gain a lot of experience, knowledge, kinship, etc...

And although I think beatle is right (best players usually win), in a race to 3 and/or 2, they don't always have to!

Not saying this is a bad idea, I support anything I can that would help the popularity of the game grow!
I agree -- for me, getting into our tournaments is more for the camaraderie than a legitimate chance of winning anything, but that is.....PRICELESS

To meet and play fellow members then a format of RR fits the above statement by our founder. Whitey

I have no chance in the members tournaments. However I learn a new approach to the game in every one...I dont go to these for the competition I go for fun with the guys...
I also will play against anybody on here for 20 a game, albeit everyone here know I am an improving d player.

Apparently as we all seem to be "D" players we are going to need a "D"s only tournament..

I don't know what others meant, but I was meaning "B player" in the sense of dead money, not A,B,C,D,E

I don't think you're dead money. I think you're a couple of balls better than the people I mentioned. Nothin' personal, just trying to clarify what I had in mind.

Wow, Bille, are you already all the way up to D?

Congratulations. I never thought you'd get there.

I'm a certified W. I'll take 11-6.
