So the morning of that Wednesday Rhys was scheduled to play my friend, apparently Rhys was running late and stuck in traffic. Rhys puts up a public post onto facebook for the world to see stating "Stuck in traffic, in route to the Worlds 14.1 Tournament to play the worst player in the tournament".

Who the **** does that, that is not something you broadcast out for the world to see, i have a screenshot of the post if you'd all like to see it.. A bunch of us called him on it and he denied the whole thing.

At that point we all decided to stop promoting him or his room for any events that he holds. and to never patron his business.
That does sound like a d!ck move but let me ask a dumb question. Is english his first language and is it possible he used the wrong words in his post? I know it's a stretch but thought it was at least worth asking.

Nanuet is a drive, but the parking could be worth it.

Steinway had a lot of distractions and considering there was no ref to watch the Earl vs Strickland match. It helps to sell the new location.

I hope parking is much better in Nanuet.

That has to be one of the best things I've seen in a while. Lol, every match he's in is the Earl vs. Strickland match. Perfectly Stated.

Thanks for the laugh and good shooting to you!

It was neither Earl or Jayson's fault there was no ref at the table, I will never play in a major event again - without a referee - not interested in the drama nor do I find it even a little funny.

said it before and I'll say it again, refs should be part of the budget when it comes to pro tournaments. I've ref'd my leagues tournaments for $100 the whole Saturday and a free meal from the room. the league director always thanks me because it is hard to find anyone who would do that all day.

Being a ref is hard work if you're actually paying attention.

truth be told, paying attention is the easiest part for me. the hardest part I've found about being a ref is dealing with all the personalities. the league director has a specific rule for playoff games, if you ask a question you will get docked a game. so having to enforce that is not hard for me, but dealing with angry people is a whole different ball game.
