I too have a question about advancement. Which gives greater advancement - playing a category with * or ** and scoring ca 600, or playing one without an asterisk and scoring ca 1300?
I don't have a clue about how much advancement * and ** categories give but I can tell you one thing: the advancement bonus is greater in ** than in *.
So how about you ask the question again.
Which gives greater advancement - playing a ** category and scoring 600, playing a * category and scoring 950 or playing a non-starred category and scoring 1300?
