Making the cut

As you know, we'll cut to the top 12 anglers after Day Two. At the moment, it looks like it'll take around 33 or 34 pounds to make the cut, but since weights carry through to the final day not all of those anglers are going to have a realistic chance of winning. With big bass here weighing 9 or 10 pounds, only the anglers within that margin of the leader will have any chance at all of taking first place and the berth in the Classic. If you enter the final round more than 10 pounds back of the leader, you have essentially no chance of winning.
