Every premier tournament I have ever been to (about 20-25 total, 13 this season) have always done deck checks. Some before the event (optional for everyone and/or mandatory for younger divisions), some during swiss rounds (OK, only Nats for this), but, every single premier tournament that I was around during top-cut (judging, playing or watching) has done deck checks before top-cut started. That is until this year's SPTs. I kept thinking it was weird. But, maybe it isn't, maybe all the events I have been to prior to this one were run by PTOs/Head Judges that perform deck checks and others do not. I am not asking for a poll, just want to know peoples experience with the lack of deck checks at premier events, especially at the SPT and higher level.
