There have been many threads on this, I chose this one to show how long people have been mentioning it.
There are some who have been lobbying strongly for this, maybe even setting up a CC for that purpose, why?
Well the only ranked rounds they play are the premier monthlies, other premium tournaments and the very occasional high stakes RG. The premier monthlies they only ever finish in the money, this is because they play close to the end of the time and WD if their score means they'll be outside. Why waste a rr I guess. Anyway maybe 5 or 6 rr's a week with the rest just filler. 750rr's to Champ and then another 1,000 to TC so he should manage to keep avoiding the best players in the tiered premium events but what about practice for the big events, lets complain to wgt.
There are advantages of not being in the top tiers I'm glad if there's one place it's advantageous being at that level. For giving one small reason that being a sandbagger doesn't give an advantage, I like they're not available.
To be clear, I don't think anyone in this thread is a sandbagger.
