Think you missed point. I was proposing a divisor to MATH and BIG Game prizes to normalize them vs. RiverChasers and Mookie.

Dividing MATH entries by 2 and Big Game by 5 makes them fit into a scoring sysstem like they were 12 and 15 dollar entry tournies

Forgot to add, I am too much of a donkey to take money for lessons. There are quite a few people in blogger community able to support themselves on poker.

Can say I do have "moments of clarity" where I am absolutely sure what someone has and other moments where I am absolutely convinced hand I am representing is stronger than any hand someone else could have.

I have definitely paid off smaller bets in past to learn if feeling was correct.

hand I bluffed Alan and gnome on was a combination of me knowing I had not gotten out of line, penner and Gnome's hands not looking particularly strong, my board looking in line with hand I intended to represent and desire to try an audacious act in front of other bloggers. Realistically no one folds after 7th Sy. in stud.

I reread my post on your blog, Bayne, and I can see how you thought I misinterpreted the point you are making. Actually, I understood your point, and was agreeing with it... albeit in an impossible way to understand. I was agreeing with you, and trying to show that those who think the Big Game and MATH deserve more BBT points, should just be happy with the extra money--and I'm sure many are.

I'm also sure there are a few bloggers who don't think it is fair for those who play the most events to have such a higher chance of winning the BBT. That doesn't prove that you are any good at poker, it proves that you have a lot of time on your hands--and also understand how the points system works.

Will you trade poker lessons for baloney sandwiches? Just kidding, I was pretty much just joking around about the lessons, and trying to point out that I knew how good you were before "the second coming" occurred.

Cleraly there was a flaw in scoring in that OOSSUUU, myself and others who carved out a hug amount of time to play in majority or all events were at a huge advantage. Clearly Astin and Don would have had better shot at prizes if they had played more events.

Flip side of course is that those who played in every event also made greater contribuitions to prize fund in end.
