September 8 (Part II), 2009
I was looking forward to play in a local 8 ball tournament which is starting on September 27, 2009.
Unfornately the guy who is running the tournament decides to allow all players to play, including open and A players.
Last spring, he started this 8 ball tournament limiting the players to C and D players only. So I started playing this tournament because it was less intimidating and the chances of coming last place are slim.
Now the guy wants $15.00 as an entry fee (instead of the $10.00) and letting all types of player play. I doubt I'll be playing in this tournament because there is absolutely no incentive.
Why are people greedy?
If you think about it, letting the C and D players play by themselves allow them to improve and gain more confidence both in the game and playing in tournaments. It also is for the good of pool itself because it does not discourage the lower players and instead entices them to play in bigger tournaments down the road.
What do you think? Am I wrong to segregate C and D players?
