I just think his mind may not be in it. I usually fail at these brackets because I try to pick upsets.

What about Cale? He is a two seed and as a total homer I would love to see him win.

I have Wysocki winning in an upset over Nate Doss.

Some upsets I've picked are: Chris Eads over Tank, Scott Burtard over Jim Oats, and Nikko getting knocked out early by Ulibarri (his breakup situation w/ Carman was a factor in that).

How the hell do you guys find out these things? I could understand if you were a hardcore tourney player or local to that players area but besides that???? I think Wysocki has a really good chance at going all the way. We''l see how raw talent stacks up against raw talent with more experience.

My whole bracket is based off of random guesses and giggling at people's names (go Fosdick).

I was talking to Schwebby and Koling about it at this past weekends tournament. What I was more interested in was how Brian Schweberger knew about it? lol

Hows everyone doing after the 1st round?

Dear Derek Billings and Jay Reading... wtf guys? C'mon.

Dear Josh Anthon, thanks for backing out of the tournament and getting replaced by Val. I'm glad I had time to correct that in my bracket (oh wait... I didn't).

Well i'm fucked.

As far as I am concerned, the pick'em game is now void because of the late scratch by Thuggy.

Not too worried yet..... As long as several players pass away in a tagic mass accident and Schultz is allowed back in to sweep, I should be ok.

Don't pdga rules state there must be an hour break between rounds? If so, most likely going to see some serious protests because after the first round I heard that there was only a 25 minute break allowed.

Please post where you see this rule in the Competition Manual.

I'll save you the trouble, victorb - there is no required length of break. We typically do 30-35 mins at our events because of the length of the rounds.

Never said I read it straight out of there. I haven't been on the course in almost 2 months, let alone opened up my comp manual.

Regardless of if it is in there or not, there should be a common courtesy of at least 45 minutes between rounds for players to have a break.
