Default Can we change the Tournament Strat forum names one last time?

I think the distinction between high stakes and low stakes is a bad one and would like to change HSMTT to "Advanced Tournament Advice / Theory" and SSMTT to "Beginner's Tournament Advice / Theory"

I am open to suggestions to replace Beginner's with another more fitting word to be more inclusive as well as picking either Advice or Theory

Sounds like a pretty bad idea unless you explain the "why" of it further.

I dont think it sounds like a bad idea without the why but here is the very simple why.

Stakes are not really a main indicator for the complexity of a question in poker tournaments. A very deep theory question can come from a hand in a $20 tournament or a $2000 tournament and a equally shallow and beginner idea can come from both. The qualifier that means the most, per the current day, satellite qualifier filled, tournaments is the advanced nature of the question not the amount of the buyin.

jurollo,

the only thing that amuses me about this is that the discussion worked exactly the other way around last time, i believe.

As I said over AIM. Good idea. Impossible to implement though. Nobody knows whether their question is advanced or basic.

Bingo.

All this will do is end up in arguments where the mods ostensibly have to insult the intelligence of the guy who doesn't realize he's not "advanced"
