(Bracket at bottom of page 3)
My vote for biggest snub goes to Jay Greenwood. The only number I saw was 941 and it took a 945 rating to make this list (keep in mind that only the top 32 rated players as of this coming July will be exempt).

Most underrated is tough. Duden as a 6 is obvious, but Farnsworth as an 8 is a contender as well.

Favorite 1st round matchup is easily D Peyton/Matt Wieben. My prediction is that Doug's earplugs won't match his shirt or his shorts.

Most likely 1 seed to go down would be Sprague to Bad Brad Milder!

You were one of the outlyers. If you weren't current I went to Legion of Doom first and it had your rating at 973. I'm sure it was up later in the year, but I didn't look that hard. There are several people that could be 10 pts too low or too high for various reasons and that will move you a long way in the seeds. 950 gets you an 12 seed, but 944 is out of the tournament! In a month or two it'll look a lot better. Need more people to be current.

After I win this, would AO get to play the 8-9 loser?

So if you aren't current then what happens Clue? Can't play? Are there many players that aren't current that would make the field if they were? Other than Kenton!!

So top 32 are automatically in with ratings higher than 945. Then the Am bracket will be 32 players rated 944 and down. Right?

945 is just the number you had to be at when he drew up the brackets. You just have to be in the top 32, ratings wise, to get an auto invite. The ratings he will use will be from the July update he said. So I could see ten people at least getting switched around...ESP. DP with his 2 round 966 rating lol

Thanks Tyler, that's exactly right. This bracket I posted was simply to wet a few people's appetite. I tried using the top 64 rated players, but the definition is very skewed with a lack of a current list.

In a couple months I will pick a date for registration to open. It will be first come first serve. Doesn't matter if you're 600 rated. However, 32 spots will be reserved for the top 32 rated players. If, after roughly a 2 week window, those players are not registered then those spots will be given to those on the waiting list. Only thing else I haven't mentioned is that I'm also reserving 4 spots for the 4 HOF members whom the brackets are named for.

I apologize for the confusion and certainly hope I didn't offend anyone with where they fell in the bracket. The only person who should be pissed is Jay Greenwood! How are you not in the top 64 and Lindsley is?!? I'm sure I'll do at least one of these per month as updates come along. A lot will change. Just trying to have some fun with it!
