Most people get that rule wrong. It's "Keep It Stupid-Simple". As in, that's how simple you want to keep it.

"Academy-like" Awards for 2019 Tournaments

I thought it might be fun to make up categories and announce winners.

Don't think of it as building "a" course. You'll be tweaking it and messing with the design forever. Just get some baskets and make setting up the course part of the game.

Something like that. I'd want to look at some numbers before setting a specific rating. Maybe where a 950 rated player would have a 50/50 shot at cashing in a big event.

Wouldn't MP9 be for 9 year old pros?

Almost as ridiculous would be using Roman numerals to get MPCM.
