Then by all means compete. You don't need to be winning prizes subsidized by your competitors entry fees to do that. That is really what the spirit of the bottom Am division should be about.[/QUOTE]
Am i understanding that some of the $ i pay to get into these tournaments is actually being allocated the the divisions above me? So pro's get paid out what they put in but Am's can't/shouldn't win anything but a $5 trophy?
Pardon my ignorance to this matter but i just started to play in tournaments and I am a little confused.
