Talking Australian Open 2012 is FULL



72 players have registered for this years Australian Open - oos, Australian Championships that is DOH, making it the largest event in Australian DG History! After a few setbacks (plus I gotta break out of work really ealry somehow to make my flight!)...I have decided to be one of the 72...even with the airlines jacking up prices from a few weeks ago, ugh.

Will provide you guys with updates and such, but for now the big question.

My state will be sending a 10 player strong contigent...1 Master, 3 Opens, 5 advanced and 1 Rec. I am one of the 5 Advanced, but played the last event as a Rec, and am considering applying to be put back down again - I am a rec player plai and simple.

Should I do so to even up our numbers (2 in rec instead of 5 in one catergory) or just deal with being way last in Advanced...no doubt behind a few recs as well.

Oh and yes, those are all the divisions over here before anyone asks...

people say that, but I felt more challenged as a rec, going against my peers...as an advanced I was put down with the really bad players and didnt learn a thing.

I can see what he's saying. I made my first move to advanced before I was ready for it and constantly found myself on the bottom cards. There is no competition on the bottom card. It's just a bunch of guys that had a poor first round and are now treating everything super casual, usually not sober, and full of complaining. It's not fun.
