If I was going to be third, I am no longer because of the extension since I am sure that Phil's game started after 12pm EST. Opening it up to people like Dean just steals most of the prize money from everyone else. And I don't think that an extension actually helped anything unless it was announced at the time of postponement so people could plan and prepare so people like me have time to defend my position on the leader board. Every change has been to my disadvantage in this tournament, and that should never be the case under any circumstances. No player should have to endure those kinds of conditions. That would have put me at 2nd, but now it puts me at nothing. At least I am one of the top qualifiers at this point, which was done correctly. Let me see, $100 or two changes from the original format that screws me over. hmmmm, I think I have a right to be upset. I don't mind getting beat by Phil and Jeff because like myself we all improved our personal best, and I tip my hat to them. This is true overall, but then it will just go to someone who is in the top 12, and this still does not solved the non-division format issue. Maybe we should create a rating system like in Chess, that would be interesting, and calculated based tournament averages, etc.

Yikes.

I was hoping the top 3 wouldn't change in those last 12 hours, exactly because it would be unfair to you, but yeah, you got boned 100%.

I too would be annoyed at the very least. My sympathies!

Corey, you should consider this: this might actually work out *better* for you in the "metatournament". Think about it: now we've now gotten the top 12 out of the way, plus two of the more powerful wildcards (Phil and Jeff Wolfe). They can no longer win prize money.

So if you can repeat or exceed your performance from this tournament in the next tournament, you might place first because the field will be softer. In other words, placing third in this one would actually *cost* you money because you'd be ineligible for a prize later.

I decided on a strategy of just running boards in this tourney and one of the reasons for that is that, based on the "no repeat prizewinners" rule, I'm saving my serious, all-out attempt for one of the later tourneys, where it stands a better chance at more money, because the bigger guns will have been cleared out.

Think long-term! This might be the best thing that could have happened to you!

Thanks, Chris. I understand the strategy that I will need to work with at this point. I see that this addresses some of my concerns but I still think there is a measure of crap on both of the fronts in general that may not sit well with everyone. Like I told Eric, it is your money so you can do with it what you want.

Uh oh! Chris has discovered the secret that if you attach the prefix 'meta' to words that you automatically sound more sophisticated!
