- Apr 1, 2004Hi Tyson,
If someone feels less pressure at a local and can actually solve
closer to their ability, I say go for it. If pressure is the issue
that is, more pressure at the Worlds, less at the locals, then I would
think that we should encourage less-pressure events so that shy people
get a fair crack at the records.
But some people may feel more pressure in a local tourney because
they're performing in front of their friends and family. Or it may be
the other way around and a competitor at a local event might not feel
pushed to do his or her absolute best because there is less competition.
I think that while some people have a hard time under pressure,
some people don't, and others actually thrive under pressure. Having
local, national, and world events allows for all a more even-handed
chance at records.
If times are not official the participants may feel let down. I was
disappointed that Macky got no credit officially in January.
Personally I think that the April 3 tourney should be official if
only to give Macky another crack at the records.
