...but when you're the only entrant in a competition I suppose it doesn't make much difference.
It's far from the ideal situation but when there is only one entry then what other option is there other than for the sole entrant to be deemed the winner?
If only one horse runs a race they're still considered the winner, albeit a winner who faced no competition.
Ultimately it's not Cobalt Frost's
fault that he is the only entrant this month, since the situation is completely out of his hands. If anything he should be applauded for contributing when the rest of us did not.
