"There are two things I like about Last Man Standing tournaments. First, they're properly organised. The team do a great job. You enter on the website, play online, then check your stats and start practicing for the next one. Second, they're fun. The ref keeps everything clean in the game and every time I've played there's never been any attitude from the other players. They let their skills do the talking if you know what I mean. You learn from people better than you and have a laugh too. Maybe next time I'll finish second from last."
