Massimo Lanzarotti in Vanderbilt
I assume that most/all entrants into the Vanderbilt would prefer to play against Lanzarotti's team rather than be forced to exit the event AND be dealt multiple penalties in addition. All I can say is, play well and hope that Lanzoratti's team does not meet many opponents.
Open Memphis Discussion Thread

What is a "world class player"?
If I misunderstood your point, David, I apologize. That being said, not sure yet I understand it. Will have to put off finding out for now, though. Hoping I can follow suit myself shortly!
