    Why am I the only player at -1 that did not qualify for the final round while 5 others did?

    Because the cut off is fifty places , and there are rules laid down to determine places for those on tied scores , . I can’t recall those rules but if you search to the right , for showdown rules you should find them . Next time I expect it will be you getting through and someone else missing out.

    The Top 50% qualify for the next round. If total is tied, the leader board will be determined by the following tiebreakers.

    1.number of showdown holes completed

    2. score of final showdown game

    3. score of second-to-last showdown game

    4. score of third-to-last showdown game

    5. number of double eagles scored in showdown

    6. number of eagles scored in showdown

    7. number of birdies scored in showdown

    8. first to complete showdown round

    FINAL CUT LINE

    ELIMINATION ROUND

    I have a question . Is this a case where this is either a Rookie or a Veteran score card/cut line ?

      And that is the reason we don't see the OP in this ? Because there is a different division that he would be in ?

      If so . How do we tell the difference ?

    This thread has quite a few things we've talked about lately.

    you don't post much true stuff unless it's redundant. See the tiebreak pic that you posted 4 hours after someone already posted the info. Just a waste of space. Captain Redundancy.

    He's definitely in a Rookie division because -1 won't ever make the cut in Veteran.  Cutlines in Veteran are  -3  in round 1. then -7 (usually) in round 2. and due to tiebreaks some of those get in some don't.

     

    as to your question... Im going to answer it because this further reiterates how clueless you are about the game.

     

    Newsflash: More than 100 people play in  Rookie,Veteran, This is funny to me that you don't grasp this... Thousands actually. Expert is short people and has it's own problems because of it. not going into Expert division here. 

    Each grouping of 100 is essentially a subgroup of 400 (4x100). We will call those A,B,C,D. Note this is merely for  numbers and understanding in reality the players are split off randomly into other groups after each round. But the numbers don't change.

    Round 1. top 50 from all four groups advance. Two new groups of 100 are formed. E,F

    Round 2 top 50 from E and F both advance and a new group G is formed.

    G is the final round. 

     

    However as i said in round 2 you may be moved into another round 2 grouping. that doesn't have any of the people you played before in it. Same for round 3. 

    What's important to understand is how each level is created.

    So there may be another grouping of 4 that is L,M,N,O. Second tier of P,Q and final round with a label of R.

    You might finish in top 50 of group B and then be moved into Q then if make that top 50 be in G not R. 

    They aren't linear in how the groups are formed. You don't necessarily stay with the same people

    Final note: +1 in a showdown is really bad. in what world do you think you could ever beat me in this game??  you're just plain bad at this. you didn't even make the final round in the Rookie division... #facepalm

      That is your biased opinion .

      I did not recognize 

    blackridgenik:

    Post as being the same rules as I posted . Had I . I would not have posted it .

      You have no idea of the amount of redundancy in these forums . If you believe me to be overly redundant . This one was an honest error . I do try and minimize my redundancies . Mine may like this one would only be twice . And has only happened a few times .

      If you have read through these forums . You will find some with 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , times repeated and quoted . That I am not part of . You are still nit picking me . No one would have cared that I also screen shot the rules . But you sure are quick to point out how terrible my trying to help is and that makes me invalid or something .

      You really look desperate and insecure with all of this . Why don't you stop ?

     

    Mythanatos:
    as to your question... Im going to answer it because this further reiterates how clueless you are about the game.

      Oh really . And you think anyone else could have answered with what you stated ? That this is common knowledge ?

      Hardly. How did you expect anyone to know that information ?

      Or did you just look it up ( if there is a place to look it up ) prior to posting it ?

      I'm sure you already had that knowledge . But I didn't . I'll wager that it is not commonly known or even thought about .

      I haven't had much luck or played well in the Showdowns . And is not a gauge of my average record .

      I have skills . Just not any good luck . Here is an example of a recent lucky win vs a Champion in the Montreal Room .

      And happens more frequently than you would want to believe . Based on my own encounters is why I made the statement that I did . I can have good rounds . Sometimes often . And can be very competitive . Regardless of your take on what my standings are in the Showdowns .

     

      But I guess I missed the part that identifies the rookie vs the veteran division . By looking at the scorecards or wherever it is posted . I have not seen that . And is what I am inquiring about .

      In fact this is all I can find in my notes .
