Because, you're an amateur, and amateurs receiving unequal prizes based on their performance flies in the face of what amateurism means.

It seems like the mentality is that if you are playing rec and are never going to move up you shouldn't even be playing in tourneys. This is what i don't understand. Not everyone wants to make money out there.
Some just want to compete.
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.
