GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
From my recollection, I've never seen VP used on the final day for the Opens or the B flight in D22 (both held on same day). This is since 2013.
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
I can confirm what Phil has said, I've played in at least 5 of these events on the same day as the D22 Opens (in the B's), and can specifically recall it was always scored as IMPs in both events on the last day.
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Not sure why it's a "burden", you're playing for a second spot which didn't exist before. I would think people would be happy for the opportunity. Doesn't have to be a long match, make it 15 boards or whatever. I think anything other than knock out ...

Joe Jones's Recruitment Strategy
I have marketed to young gamers (i.e. minecraft) as well as older demographics (i.e. mature audiences and 40+ yr old female casual gamers) with success. This older audience is far from computer savvy, and they are actually much more effective to market to as they have less resilience ...
Joe Jones's Recruitment Strategy
This is extremely inaccurate. Your inexperience with online marketing is not a very good anecdotal argument. I own a marketing business focused primarily in the casual gaming sector. The majority of my marketing (300+K/month in spend) is done via google. I've acquired North of 20 M new ...
