A-List / B-List

It's an unfair advantage....Why?....

Because it's the friggin "Tournament of Champions" people, that's why. It's not the "Tournament of Champions and Dealmakers"....Imagine how LJ must feel after getting so close so many times or anyone else who finished 2nd for that matter. They just weren't fortunate enough i guess.

Congratz to Hoyazo* for the early Christmas gift. It must be fun to be given a seat instead of earning it like everyone else.

"I'm with StB on this... the seat wasn't won. IF they want to chop for money, do so. The seat should have gone to the winner. Shameful."

"If i get HU in another one of these and someone wants to chop and take 1st for the seat, i would consider taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd place money.........then say no

win it like a man."

"I would really hate it though if the person who chopped in to the TOC ends up winning the TOC..."

Hey, Hoy. I'm all for you posting these comments, since it takes some cajones, but I'm wondering about the context. Any reason why you chose to post these things now? Is it related to the last Mookie shut-down issue?

Jordan, you wouldn't have to ask if Hoy would just say what he's trying to say instead of talking around the elephant in the room.

A server crash has happened one time in the past during a BBT event. Two major differences:

1. The only time this happened before, the servers went down really early in the tournament with only a few people out. It was hours from even hitting the money let alone a winner.

2. It happened during the BBT1 freeroll at the end of the challenge.

I'm all ears if you have a better solution that is fair to everyone involved.

To be clear, I'm not questioning the decision that was made, not even one bit.

Just pointing out the hypocrisy of the reactions to it is all.

Understood. Just trying to clarify.

Just think of us C(D/E/F/Z)-listers, nobody even cares how we get a seat.

Unless you get 13 pocket aces and 12 cowboys that hold up.

Thanks for adding some drama, it was sadly lacking in this round of the BBT. Now where's my popcorn?

But how does Full Tilt give Pauly $1 more than 1st place money????

I don't think Pauly getting the seat has anything to do with him being an A+ lister... is that what you are insinuating?

I like these opinion creating posts of yours.

Thanks for the linkage, you just doubled my hit count for the day...
