Well. Don't expect all Q-draw to be that difficult. USA tournaments are known for their tough Q-draws.

I looked at the draw, saw Wowchuk, Brie and Amy and started trying to decide who was gonna be the best 2 picks to get DB'ed....and then I remember we aren;t picking DBs anymore. :lol:

Nope,picking the winner and RU is still same,independent from the qualifying game.

At least Brie and Amy were up to their usual (lack of) standard.

Looks like picking qualifiers will be tough. I only managed to pick one right, where a lot of the others did not even get one correct.

Is there any rule against picking two (or three) players in qualifying who are in the same section? I was really tempted to pick both Tetreault and Riner and now I wish I had...

:scratch: at first I was going to write "I don't see why you couldn't do that" coz choosing players from the same section will just make your chances go down... But then I thought it over and maybe it is better to put in that rule. Coz in a draw like we had in Boca Raton it is almost for sure that by picking Riner AND Tetreault you will be sure about SOME points. While if you're forced to pick from different sections, you may end up with nothing (like happened to most of us in this draw) and that is more exciting I think? So I would vote to put in the rule that your qualifying picks have to come from different sections.
Maybe others disagree? :shrug:

Yeah,seems like we should put a rule about it because at times some sections are really tougher than others.
