Alan your answers have been very helpful. Figure it out by yourself and if I am not able to do that I should not be cutting in the Grandmaster class.
The confusion lies, at least for me, in that most competition stones are measured from flats and not points. Alan you have never competed in even a novice class so it does not matter at all to you. All you can do is give smart comments. I feel like forums should be helpful and positive but some people just want to be rude.
All I did by starting this thread is ask a simple question. Some of answers have not been helpful at all. Just rude comments. It might be that I am not worthy to compete in the Grandmaster class unless I can figure it by myself, at least that is what some members are saying indirectly.
