I'm bring this up now because it is my hope that POP "will see the light" like WOTC did and use best-of-3 match play at the World Championship. Here's why: Most of the players at Worlds will be near the same skill-level. I'd hate to think that a single game with bad luck will determine the World Champion. For example, I saw Matt Moss win an STS championship game on turn-2 when his opponent failed to draw another basic. Although Matt was a great player that year (and might still be), it was very disappointing to see the Championship match (1-game) last for only 3 minutes, when it took both players all day to get to that point. We've been doing best-of-3 match play here in Colorado Springs for over two years now and the players in our area (and in Denver too) view 1-game matches as unfair and undesireable. In fact, when time was critical a couple weeks ago, our players preferred to play fewer best-of-3 matches instead of more 1-game matches. Furthermore, I think all PTOs should make every effort possible to support best-of-3 at their upcoming Challenges. It would be ashamed to see a player win a free trip because his/her opponent got unlucky for 1 game and didn't get a proper chance to "comeback" from this bad luck. IMO, players who win best-of-3 match play games are the best players. And, we certainly want the best players to play at Worlds AND the best player to be the World Champion.
