Is hatnote necessary?

"Concentration" does not currently redirect to this article. If Wikipedia guidelines apply here, then the hatnote probably should not be used until consensus exists to create the redirect. Or do you have some other good reason the hatnote should stay? Eighty5cacao 15:21, 2 November 2011 (MST)

The whole story of the game is based on a disambiguation joke between "concentration" as in the card game and "concentration" as in what goes down over a plasma half-life. (It had previously been between the card game and internment camps until Shiru suggested this one.)
