Show Notes

On the first full-length episode of The Mock Review to not feature a guest, Ben and Drew discuss invitational tournaments and flying blind at competition. Ben gets on his soapbox about being fair to newer programs, and Drew explains the risks of sending out a lot of early invites as an invitational host. Ben and Drew take opposite positions on looking at ballot results during tournaments, and agree to disagree on the merits of knowing your record during a tournament.
