Rules

Pool Play- All teams in their pool play each other.
1. One game is played against each team in your pool to 11 points, win by 2

Playoff
1. Playoff seeds will be determined by the number of wins/losses, then points scored/ points against, then head to head record-through the round robin.
2. The top 4 teams from round robin/pool play will enter the playoff. If a division is split into two pools per bracket, then it will be the top 2 teams of each pool going to the final 4 playoff.
3. Teams 1 and 4 play each other, while teams 2 and 3 play. Winners play for gold/silver and losers play for bronze. Tournament games are single elimination, one game to 15, win by 2. Open Division medal matches may be games to 11 by 2, best 2/3 if time allows.

DUPR RULES
ALL PLAYERS MUST have a DUPR account to play, if you do not have a DUPR account then you can sign up here: https://mydupr.com/signup
You do not need an exact rating to enter the tournament. Players with a rating of N/A may enter any bracket they deem appropriate.

However, those with ratings will be asked to enter the appropriate bracket to avoid sandbagging. In other words, higher level players may not enter lower level brackets. But, lower level players may enter higher level brackets if they feel it is appropriate for them to do so. Registrations are being monitored and all player DUPR ratings will be verified at THE TIME OF REGISTRATION. If your DUPR goes up between registration and the event, that is acceptable.
If you have multiple accounts, we will use the highest to confirm or deny registration.

Bracket start times, divisions, number of total games played, and total length of play are subject to change and will be determined after the final registration deadline. That said, we will NOT merge brackets without your consent. We will let you know a few days in advance about the final schedule.

Waiver: By registering for this event, you are agreeing to the waiver conditions attached. If you are a minor, we need a guardian’s signature before entry.

Weather
Inclement Weather: This is an outdoor tournament. If weather or any other unforeseen circumstance occurs the tournament will do all it can to play matches. If brackets are in mid play when a weather or unforeseen circumstance occurs the situation will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
