    I'm super excited for this, having just recently gotten into tournament play (from being a basic, lifelong, casual player), I look forward to attending and playing in this.

    Any idea on cost of entrance?

    Thanks in advance Tim and crew!

    I was there the entire weekend, and I never saw any "drama". I left early this morning and never saw anything strange or out of the ordinary.

    It was definitely interesting interacting with the top players in the world. All were very pleasant in every interaction I had. (I didn't go out of my way to seek anyone out, but while waiting in ques it was pretty cool shooting the breeze with the likes of ke, rd, bk, ls, sb, etc.)

    I thoight the tournament was done well, just wish there was more room so people didn't have to crowd the machines, and the ques shorter/faster/the ability to que multiple machines at one time. Small gripes really, ESPECIALLY considering it was the first one. I've been to many other established tournaments, and this one felt like it had been around for a while.

    Great job Tim, Levi, and everyone else who helped out. I would definitely go again.

    Quoted from chuckwurt:

    I don’t think you’ll ever see this as an option.


    No doubt, but it would be nice!

    If you aren't at the machine when the your turn is starting, you lose your ticket. I would think it would actually speed some things up, especially when trying for main and classics at the same time.

    I know it would never happen, and understand why, but an unexceptional player can dream!

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    Throwing out obnoxious drunks will also be simpler this way .

    Well, looks like I'm out now...

    J/K, I'll bring plenty of good bourbon and continue on with the cheeky shenanigans
