Not-Bowen here . . .
The way I understand it . . . no. If you barely miss the A cutoff at the end of day 1, you would then be top seed in the B division starting day 2. Your day 2 groups would only consist of players also in the B division after day 1. If you finish day 2 at the top of B, you're the #1 seed going into the B finals. Not sure how the A/B cutoff works as the heavies are restricted to play in A both days regardless of how well they do (to keep them from sandbagging). I'm assuming it's 1/3's with A division made up of all the players pre-restricted to A, and the rest of the people who scored high enough rounding out that 1/3. This also means that if you're Bowen (if he plays) and you're restricted to A, and tank the first day, you're screwed for day 2 (or have to make a serious winning streak day 2 to qualify), as you're up against all the players records of the people who built up enough "wins" to advance to A.
WPR boints are given out with the last place in A getting more boints than the person who wins B. Not sure about papa circuit boints

Also, given that the PAPA Circuit only awards boints to the top 24 at each event does that mean winning B will give you zero boints towards the tour?
And one final question is about how many players make each division? It says 1/3 but is that of the total amount of players entered or is there a limit to each division and the Consolation tournament keeps getting bigger and bigger with the more entrants that sign up? I see that it can be as many as 90 players per division. Does that mean if there are 210 players that each division will then consist of 70 players or maybe 64 in each to make things simple then the last 12 are consolation?
Thanks Bowen! Just need the hall pass now. No kid and no ring should be an exemption of one shouldn't it?

I'm in PA and hoping to make it out to Pinburgh; unfortunately I can't get there on Friday, so no competition for me. Except, of course, for the inevitable side competition(s) in which I relieve you of all your hard-earned P-Town goldies....
