Big Announcement – Introducing…

by Pikkdogs ~ August 4th, 2011.

Hey Everybody.

This is just Pikkdogs here to make a special announcement.

Don’t  get your hopes up, I’m not retiring.

But, I guess you could say I’m retiring for one week.

Ed and I are proud to announce that during the week of August 8th-14th, will be introducing its first “Guest Writer Week.”  During this week you will read articles from people who have never written on this site before.  The writers will be from all different areas of expertise.  From Nationals winners to league leaders, Guest Writer Week will have it all.

Ed and I have been working really hard on this week to try to get the best writers, and I think I can say that we got one of the best and most diverse groups of writers ever assembled for one week of articles.  The authors who have currently signed on for Guest Writer Week are, in no practicular order:

  1. Alan Traxler – Ann Arbor’s League Leader and player in Michigan.
  2. Jay Hornung – the 3rd place finisher of Worlds in 2009 and winner of too many other tournaments to mention.  He writes the “Jay’s Gym” article on
  3. Kyle Sucevich – also known as “Pooka,” he is the 2009 U.S. Nationals 1st place winner, finished in the top 4 in 2010, and got second place in 2011.  He currently is one of the masterminds of the show “The Top Cut.”  It can be found on
  4. Michael Slutsky – Competitive player in the Minneapolis area.
  5. Jordan Baker – Member of Team Warp Point and competitive player in the Detroit Area.
  6. Adam Capriola – Adam has many accomplishments including multiple Nationals top cuts (most recently this year) and multiple Worlds invites. Oh, and he has a little website you may have heard of called
  7. Radu C. – Competitive player in the Minneapolis area.  He top cut in this year’s U.S. Nationals and has won many other tournaments. He also has competed in Worlds.  He has the distinction of being the first player I have ever lost to, which doesn’t really matter that much to anyone but me.

Of course this list is subject to change. Ed and I are still finalizing some things with some of the writers, and who knows we may get a new writer or two along the way.  But, so far these 7 writers have made the commitment to join Guest Writer Week.

While we are very happy to be hosting these excellent writers and players for Guest Writer Week, that is not the only improvement that is going on at  We also have added several pages that you can access at the top of the page just below the logo.

As you can see, Ed and I are working hard on improving the site.  If you have any suggestions for the site, you can leave them in the comment box.

Thanks, and make sure to take some time to get ready, because the madness starts on August 8th!
