"Relative to No. 2, letís find out why so many people who have been to a live tournament have stopped coming."

I will give my reasons for hardly playing in ABT events anymore.

i) Flight and hotel make it an expensive hobby. Also relevant here is that everyone else has gotten better and I am out of serious practice and worse so less likely to win prize money.

ii) I have become more health conscious and backgammon is a sedentary activity.

iii) I noticed that tournaments often end much later on Sunday than the schedule would indicate. Staying an extra night is not really an option so it means I cannot enter every side event I otherwise might.

iv) There are some tournaments that are not at least clock preference.
