Every single one of you should be playing open. There is nothing at stake here. Nothing to lose and everything to gain. Your game will only get better if you play above your present level. This isn't a sanctioned event, the cost isn't that much more, so kick yourself in the berries and move up. You may lose, hell you WILL lose, but losing in open is better than winning in advanced or intermediate. Do you really want to win a free buzz or boss? If you just want plastic, sh1t, I will give you some of mine. I've got plenty of unused, tournament win plastic I will give you. If ANY of you are planning on playing in AM worlds next year, you need to play OPEN NOW, to get the experience you will need to be successful. This is a good chance to play at a higher level.
