    Hefner was shagging bunnies well into his eighties.

    I'm confused. 

    So what if Hefner caught a bunny rabbit or two?

    As for quitting, long long time ago (a year ago when WGT was here) you could "concede" a hole or a match.

    I understand "forfeiting" if you're not playing for Apparel. If you're losing, cut your losses and move on to the next player.

    Doesn’t make sense , forfeiting on the green , as you would still get a bronze apparel box , if you play it out and lose

    depends.

    What if trying to squeeze in an extra game in the 30 minutes. A win pays more than 3 apparel points. could even get a gold or a platinum and really come out ahead.

    or

    Bronze boxes are useless to me and quite a few others. I have maxed out every piece of common gear with exception of a few junk pieces that i don't care about at all. 

    I do apparel runs for rare and epic apparel points. Bronze boxes never give points to those.

    Agreed. Especially if trying to go for the weekly division winnings. I would rather get the coins in the next game then waste time for an apparel pack.

    Is there a correlation between winning/losing and the box you get? I thought the boxes were random, mostly getting bronze and silver with an occasional gold.

    Never get anything but bronze when loss of match, I see gold and platinum when winning vs same tier or higher and silver for winning vs lower tier- Not saying this is how it works, just what I have seen happen.

    The thing is , most people playing for apparel are not in the league of being maxed out in most of the sponsors , I just dont think the forfeiter realises you can still get almost all of the stake back if you are maxed out in certain things. Of course I can’t be certain as I don’t keep records of such things , but I would make a bet of …….. that the tour pros and masters who do forfeit,  do it , so they don’t see another loss against them in their ratios , and don’t even realise they are the only ones who can see that particular post.

    Ive never met anyone who cares about the few coins though- I regularly see forfeits in the Montreal room at 100K coins. The coins are too easy to come by for this to be a concern for most players I have spoken to.

    Yes . I don't think they realize many things . I am also surprised at the moderate number of players that aren't utilizing apparel at all . It is evident when they win and the default entry fee plus pay out is displayed .

    IE:

    CasaBlanca = 18,000  myself 19980 extra 1980 each round . There are players with 20,000+

    Montreal = 180,000  myself 199800 extra 19800 each round . there are players with 200,000+

    It is only evidence that they were not using apparel that increased coin winnings. Is not evident that they were not wearing enhanced apparel. 

    Often times a member may substitute apparel that increases coins winnings with those that increase XP.

    IMO

    Here's a good thing in a loss.

    If you have level 10 Apparel in SE (Swing Edge), they guarantee there will be 1 SE item, even in a loss! So if you lose, and have all level 10 SE, since you cannot increase your apparel, you GET PAID 200 COINS PER POINT. Losses are either 1 or 2 points so for a 500 coin loss, you can get reimbursed 200 or 400 coins.

    Yes, I lose alot BUT got my SE level 10 apparel to CMA!
