    Tristan you should ABSOLUTELY play in this! Have a look at where you are placed in the Under 1500 section of the MCC Grand Prix!!!! The winner of that gets $350 and there are 5 prizes in that section!

    You should also play in the Bob Brooking Round Robins for the same reason!

    You have an excellent chance of winning a grand prix prize!
