Do you mean "I don't know how you figured this thread was not important"?

Anyway, I'm most excited to learn about the 60% increase for early-round losers. Slams have been too top heavy, so this was a smart move.

I'm the one who deemed it was important. We are heading into this slam and people should be informed about the prize money. I think it's a huge deal. You obviously thought it was newsworthy at the time or you wouldn't have started a thread about it. Good job by the way...Cool

I just thought the thread was informative and had no comment. But I agree with you, tented, giving higher prize money to the players in the early rounds is ALWAYS good for the game, IMO.
