I was looking through some of the tournaments that are coming up for the rest of the year, and maybe I was just looking at the wrong ones but it seems like registrations are sort of light…Until you look at the Master Worlds, set to take place on November 2nd and 3rd.
…The old people are coming out in full force, y’all.
It’s interesting to see so many competitors, who are all required to have a birth year of 1984 or earlier, signing up to participate in the event. It would be interesting as well to look into the “why” of that as well: does it really have to do with age? Is it the chance to attend a Worlds competition with (I guess) less pressure than the Worlds that takes place in early summer?
If you have any theories, feel free to throw them my way: otherwise, have a great day everyone!
