You know what we call events like that around here? C Tiers. TDs around here already add $1.50 per amateur head to the pro purse for C Tiers. And frankly, thats fine. Its a C Tier, there is no expectation or requirement for added cash. As a matter of fact most events around here are B Am/C Pro events. You're letting TDs that FAIL TO DO THEIR JOB off the hook for adding cash to a B Tier. Like I said - I've run a few B Tiers. I've lost my fair share of cash running those events. I've even helped add cash to B Tiers out of my pocket that I'm not running to help the TD along.
If you want to run a B Tier you should know what you're getting into ahead of time, be ready for that $500 hit regardless of the turnout. If you want the responsibility of running a B Tier be ready for it.
