Great news regarding cancelled tournaments
Posted by Pearle (moderator) 8 Aug 2018 11:37am

How many times have we sat in a tournament room waiting for more players to join only to find that the tourney is going to be cancelled? This is very frustrating as a player and as a TD. But we have some great news to share from the Webs.

From now on if you sign up for a tournament that ends up cancelling, for your time and willingness to join, you will now get awarded 1 ladder point. This is only for tournaments that get cancelled, whether only 1 or 2 people sign up or if it is voted down as a winner take all tournament. And this is on a trial basis.

The TDs will have to do a contact us telling the webs who the players are who get awarded the ladder point, so the point may not immediately show on your stats, as all contact us are not answered at the time of submission. That is the same for the early bird award. The webs answer and update the points/tix when they are available, so it could take minutes, or it could take hours, so please be patient.

Coco - this is for you! Thank you for taking the time to signup, show up and be willing to share your ideas openly with me. See you at the tables!!

Second idea.

I have a second idea for making Tourneys more attractive. But, since the first idea is on a trial basis, I will wait till it passes and becomes a absolute rule.

Let's Hear it

Why wait Coco? This proposal has been in the works for over a year, so if you have a new one to increase participation, I think everyone would love to hear it. BG has less than 1/3 of the participation as cribbage tournaments. Perhaps your idea would increase it immensely, so let's hear it.

At you can play games of skill only -- play for free or play for $prizes!. According to the statutes of most states in the United States, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". (Also see No Gambling!).   The skill (as opposed to chance) is predominant in games of skill. Playing games of skill for $prizes, therefore, has nothing to do with gambling as it is not a contest of chance -- the more skillful player will win far more often. The chance element of a 'gamble' is either insignificant or missing. When players compete in tournaments or games of skill for $prizes -- it is "competitive entertainment" rather then "gambling". The more skilled winner will always win more matches, tournaments and $prizes.
