Hopefully UFGT10 will be one of them. It's not until may so I imagine it would make the list.

Why would you change the image of the post and put Cammy on it? Are you trying to send some kind of message?

Global ID tournament is not a premier event? That's one less Eastern tournament to choose from.

I am glad Capcom is including international countries in their tour. This is great news. Also Texas Showdown is shaping up to be a pretty hype tournament this year. They are going to be hosting a stop on the Capcom pro tour and they are having Curly Mustache too.

Well KOF is the premier title, of course Capcom would not consider it a premier event.

I feel bad for Ryan Hart since he'll be travelling all the way up to Glasgow for Hypespotting just to lose to my Dan but I'm sure it'll be a fun event for him all the same.

Darn, I should have been putting more effort into SSF4. I could take a mega bus to Texas Showdown in Houston. It's only 4hrs away from me. I'll have to pass this time.

@13
With 5000 pot bonus and one of the most stacked brackets outside of EVO and Japan, the sf tournament is a lot better competition than some premier events.
