I think putting a ** or something next to self-made players would mean determining what a “self-made” player is. If someone buys 100k, or 200k to get started and then goes on to better their rank, are they one? How about if you’ve lost over 100k (like I have recently, that was almost 1/3 my bank, and I just had recovered from playing hi/lo tournys…don’t get me started), and you start thinking about buying some chips? Would you blow your chances of a ** rank mark?
I think it’s normal for greenhorns to get cleaned out by good players. It’s part of the game. I see players doing stupid things all the time, and I don’t think I’m a great player, so if I’m seeing it, it’s happening lots. Those players have to learn that a Qd6s is not an all-in hand, for instance.
Replay gives newby players a number of options, and if the player decides to buy in to a tourny and plays badly, then it’s a good learning experience for them.
