BEST OF 2011 TOURNAMENT KICKS OFF THIS WEEKEND

By Jeff Polman

 
They've come from near, they've come from far, but all of the trusty managers for my Best of 2011 tourney are locked and loaded and hoping I can roll one of them to a championship—and a $25 gift certificate from Strat-O-Matic.
 
I got pretty swamped with managing requests this year, and may have to resort to a lottery if this keeps up, but here are the sweet sixteen and where they hail from:
