not wanting to put a dampener on this poll because it's a great idea in theory..but not for the top players or the poor also rans who qualify to play in the MAIN I.M event....i mentioned this idea to gary in cuehere last year ..and suggested callling it the Alternative I.M


i believe that to go down this road will risk uddingston losing I.M numbers and spill eventually to other areas and effectively kill the im it's self..because the grass root players would prefer to play in the alternative event and prevent themselfs coming up against top 16 ranked players and also higher ranked players too ...

that actually ain't a bad point you make there George

Although the original idea originated from the fact that out of the 800 odd IM members we currently have over the IM weekend only 128 of them are playing Tournament pool.

this as you can imagine leave a right few guys to target,

For me the IM is the elite Tournament and if you wanna test yourself against the very best then this is the place to be...

I believe the IM in general needs a wee bit of tweaking here and there (better allocation of venues and clearer rankings rewarding Scotland selection) but like i said above shuff, good point made.

yes fred...point taken.... however in a personal point of view this is dependant on the S.P.A keeping their promises of the carrot that they dangle in front of us..which is the fact that top im ranked players become instant members of the scottish A-team..( pat as an obvious example ) and also that the players ranked 5-12 instantly become scottish B-team players....and not have it taken away from you...

last year.....for example and i apologise to pat in advance for using him as an example here.......but due to PERSONAL feelings about pats commitment to the scottish team he was ommitted...however, when he paid his entry...no such omissions were in the rules...it plainly stated that.....top 4 entered the Ateam... 5-12 - B-team....then the moved the goal posts just to suit renzie......cligue..

Maybe one of the stipulations should be that you only get to play in the alternative IM if you have joined the original IM and not qualified for an event!

If you don't play to win, there's no point playing!

Thats wot i thought the original plan was,jst for unlucky losers in the i.m qualifying.....think its a great idea,that way u can book the dates arranged well in advance,rather than having 2wait 2 see if u qualify 1st.
