It's so cool that you joined in Joe! One of my favourite strategies that I have seen in play more than once is "it has to win"! Or winning by TKO. Sometimes a piece stands out so much that not picking it would put a judges very reputation on the line. I love those works of art. Phil did one of those very pieces at the Spokane nationals back in the day. But these days presentation has become so superior that it is very difficult to make a piece stand out like that, but Lowell managed it at the last WTC! I guess he proved that some shoot crap a little more consistently than others. Either way, It's definitely win win for folks who like to look at a lot of beautiful work.
