If not, you're welcome to Pattaya...
Note to potential players in Los Angeles:
If you qualify to LA, you will be automatically withdrawn from Pattaya. If you posted a commitment to play in Pattaya, you don't have to do anything, I'll take your name off the list of players...
If you don't qualify to LA, you HAVE to post a commitment in order to play in Pattaya.
ANYONE who wants to play in Pattaya, and is not included in the list of players on the PAW Pattaya thread (in the Pattaya tournament forum, of course), should post a commitment on the COMMITMENT THREAD in PAW forum until the deadline of Midnight Pattaya time November 2nd (midnight between Nov 2nd and 3rd, to make it absolutely clear...).
Because of the 12 hours difference between Philadelphia or Quebec and Pattaya, the list of qualifyers for LA will not be available before this deadline, and therefor, anyone who wants to play in Pattaya should post a commitment in time, and not wait to see if he/she qualified for LA or not.
However, I advise players who believe there's a chance that they qualify to LA and are also entered in Pattaya, not to post picks for Pattaya until they know they will not qualify to LA.
