Ouch down by 5 to 875. One really bad C-Tier dragged me down! No worries ~ I shot well 2 weeks ago and hope to get those points back and then some...

As a 984 you should go for the highest division. Also, if I were you, I would play open and just not accept cash. There is no reason to bag the hell out of the Am divisions, leave that for the people drying to become an open player, not for the open players trying to maintain Am status.

Look at your ratings detail. If the TD hadn't turned in his stuff on time, that tourney might not be in there yet.

Yeah, I am definitely moving up to open, just not going to take cash. My last Adv. tournament was last weekend. I feel like it is really hard to win AM worlds in the advanced division though, I think I would have a much better shot in 19 under. In MA1 you basically have to average 1010+ just to have a chance at winning.

there was a time when the main goal was to go pro. You worked hard to be a pro and left the Am Worlds for those, what were they called? Yes the ams. Somewhere around 2000 they must have done a huge promotion to make the Am Worlds more prestigious. I'm definitely not hating on it here. Don't get me wrong. Now I find myself wondering how much pressure is put on those Ams every year to win that one holy spot. How many years do they try? When is enough?

Ratings update

Anybody know when the next update is? Started out the year at 877 and steadily moved up to a 914. However the last tourney I had rounds of 943, 958 and 977. Looks like im going to play advanced next year whether I'm rated it or not.
