Division Question!

I am contemplating signing up for an am state championship tournament. When perusing the list I noticed one of our locals who is classified as pro and has taken cash in at least 4 tournaments was signed up. Another individual in the same boat from out of state was signed up also. I was under the impression that once you accepted cash in the open division that you could no longer play am only events. (David Wiggins?) I would appreciate it if someone could enlighten me on this subject. Thank you.

Pros with ratings under 970 have been allowed to enter Am divisions for many years EXCEPT Am Majors like Am Worlds, Am World Dubs or Am Nationals.

I'm pretty sure if it is an A- tier or lower and if the player's rating is under 970 they can play MA1. If i'm worng then hopefully someone more knowledgable can correct me. lol

Read the section near the bottom of the pdf in regards to pros playing am events. Keep in mind, td's don't always verify ratings requirements. This has happened twice to me at tournaments. lol...
