08-11-2011 Weekly Scores...........Issues
I have been getting an increasing number of emails related to weekly scores and want to set forth the basic issues: 1. The points are awarded based on the number of players who are entered into the computer. As a result if ten people sign in without providing a number, the winners points will be lower than if all signed in. Numbers are free and hosts have lists for those who forget. 2. We enter thousands of numbers in the computer each week and occasionally make a mistake and when we are notified timely of a mistake we correct it, however notifying us of a mistake which happened two months ago after the regional lists are generated and posted place correction beyond our control so please check you points regularly if you are trying to get into a regional event. 3. Failing to sign out by number is your problem and we do not look up your number. Again the host has your number so ask him and please do not expect us to stop and look up your number. 4. Each of you has a 4-6 digit number, so please take an extra 2 seconds out of your day and write clearly. Your number is far more important than your name when entering scores so print your number slowly and scribble your name if you are short on time. 5. I make every effort to enter the scores on Friday or at latest Saturday each week. If your scores are not entered, chances are that your Tournament Director has not turned them in so he or she should be your first stop in the "complaint department" about scores not being posted. Thanks for the time and Thanks for making us the best poker league in the country!
