Hence the idea to have all your tournaments under one banner, as its an event series. Way to pay attention.

Obviously. You only have like 15 threads all based around the same series of events. I guess everyone would just use common sense and put them in the same spot.

I don't get what the big deal is.....I feel that a tournament with $10,000 added cash to the pro purse deserves its own thread....in addition, its easier to post information about tournaments in their own thread. Even though its a series, the tournaments are all separate entities. Just makes more sense to do them separate.

Its a courtesy more than anything to other people that are posting events. If its a series, then its ongoing and why couldnt you go to the previous thread? I dont think anymore was ever suggested or implied.

No one said anything about any of the tournies not being worthy. Its very impressive and willl stay near the top.

Here's a quick update regarding the added cash for the Pro Purse at the A Tier. If you recall, we have raised over $7500 for the AM field in the way of a huge players pack with no money coming out of the entry fees for the players packs. On the pro side.....

  • If we have at least 4 Pro Women, we will add $500 cash to the Pro Women purse.
  • If we have at least 8 Pro Women, we will add $1000 cash to the Pro Women purse.
  • If we have at least 15 Pro Masters/Grand Masters, we will add $500 total cash to those purses and split the cash based on the percentage of players in each division.
  • If we have at least 25 total Pro Masters/Grand Masters, we will add $1000 total cash to those purses and split the cash based on the percentage of players in each division.


For instance, if we have 10 Pro Grand Masters and 15 Pro Masters, we will add $600 to the Pro Masters purse and $400 to the Pro Grand Masters purse.

This means there will be a minimum of $8000 added cash to the Men's Pro purse alone!

Do not wait to sign up for this event as this is only 33 days away! If you know you are playing in this event, please sign up as soon as you can so we can better plan for the event. We have to make plans for volunteers, food, merchandise, players packs, shirts, awards, etc. Its a big help to the LIS crew if you pre-register early so we would appreciate it! We have worked on this tournament for over 1 year so please support us!
