Those Tourneys @ Crazy Carl's were Fun , it seemed to me that most of the "Top" local players were there playing . The prize money and the cool trophy were not big enough to draw many out of state players, although there were a few there. even a few Canadian players too. I would hope if there was a Tourney that some / all of the better players in the area attended and played. What would be the thrill of playing / winning a Tourney where all the best talent stayed home or were not allowed to play ?
I think anyone who wants to play should be allowed to play . Like "The Law " said, if you want to get better skills , play better players.
I am looking forward to the Tourney and the Show. Going top be a good time for sure .
