It's about encouraging more live rated Pente play here, despite the suckiness of drawn sets penalizing the higher rated player. I think pente_gon is the favorite, an would like to encourage him to continue to play live rated sets here. If someone else besides pente_gon can win 10+ sets or gain 100+ points in live play, despite sandbagging and at the same time run the KotH gauntlet all the way to its peak (and have themselves approved as the contest winner by me, you and Karl), then I would say they desrve a 2 year sub to the site and Master status.

Retired from TB Pente, but still playing live games & exploring variants like D, poof and boat

Vic, did you not catch the compliment zoey gave you?! He said it takes a Master to take a rated set from you!

"And I'm just saying if we are here to figure out what defines a GM, we might need other measurements besides vic played a set in order to accurately know for sure. I can probably sweep you as well, but doesn't mean I'm a GM. Just shows I'm a master at least."

Frame it vic!! Take screenshot before he edits the post!!

It was in reference to pgon sweeping vic. Why did vic beat pgon? And by set i mean 20 min set regular pente where I play my A game. Not 2/5 speed where I play B game casually to give people chance. If you had stayed for other games you would had understood what I mean. The only 2 players I was planning to sweep on speed was you and sec. But you left. Im not going to trounce vic. That would just be bullying.

if by "trouncing" you mean losing game 1 in a rated set, then yes.

i think this thread has been asked and answered at this point and has digressed tangentially.
thank you, pente community!
but since said tangent has progressed, i just want to say that last night's live table was amazing!
jovial competition in the true spirit of the game!
ty to everyone who joined!

watsu has called me 'the invisible assassin'.
kinda like that better than 'beast'
but doesnt fit in a playername.
i dont think i warrant either.
guess i will just stick w/ plain ole 'vic'
i yam what i yam.

i would also like to say that the moves i used against z last night are classified, trademarked, copyrighted, and top secret.
i give no one permission to use them at any time.

Alts disgust me. Just play, b.....le. Be who you are and play among your other g'mstrs. Why be so concerned with points and colors? Allow the others of us who simply love the game to muck out our varrying positions...
