This is just sad. Terribly sad.
EQ, you aren't going to like this, but you needed to be more of a leader (address who can't qualify b4 the tourney) for the tournament. You asked Burnt to host it with you and, if you don't trust each other, get along, or on the same page, then it shouldn't have been done in the beginning. That is your fault. You knew who burnt was, and I acknowledge and can appreciate you trying to help burnt back into the community, but you have to realize that came with risk and that risk is your responsibility.
Now, we have people, who have to pick up your financial irresponsibility, because you can't host a tournament and/or picked a bad person to host it with. And, like a very immature person, you flash around the money you have, to show how you will not pay for your own tournament. That's a dick move bro. No other way to put it.
You have Tk, who can't afford it as easily as other people, yet who is still more than willing to pay for something he shouldn't have to pay for in the first place. That is a classy move Tk and I'm sorry that it has come to this. Instead of insulting his life and his income, you should be respecting him for being a stand up person and helping to take care of what you are responsible for.
Regardless of why you won't do it now, it was a decision you made before, and did NOT mention any disqualifications for YOUR tournament. Be a mature adult, pay the money you said you would pay. The fact that other people are willing to pick up your slack is a very nice gesture from those people but makes you look like an absolute asshole. I say this, actually liking you as a player and a person too. (though I feel this may not be mutual anymore after this post)
Don't make other people pay for your mistakes. That is wrong. Regardless of your reasoning for wanting or not wanting someone to play (who didn't win anyways....), you were damn near late to the tournament in the first place (while burnt was there early and signing people up), didn't play in it, and seemed to have 0 involvement besides your post and the cash prize.
You are better than this EQ. Be mad, argue your points all you want, but don't back out on your word.
