growth phase, or nearing maturity?
- 33 mostly well-subscribed cash and points-based incentive tournaments on DerbyWars.com
- 2 NHC-oriented and 1 other tournament on HorseTourneys.com on Easter Sunday
- Only 70 people played in the $40 NHC "feeder" event and about 130 in the $195 tourney for three guaranteed NHC spots (though I'm curious how many paid the full $195 fee to enter; I won entry to one of these last month through a $20 "feeder" tournament, and these feeders are an affordable way at a shot to the 2013 NHC)
- 2 tournaments on HorsePlayersQualify.com -- a feeder site to the Horse Player World Series
- Saturday's NHC-based event ($110 entry fee) on NHCQualify.com
- Onsite tournaments at Treasure Island in Las Vegas and Lone Star Park
