Pinhead Cup Weekend – Main Event 12 Round Match Play Qualifying

November 12 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm CST


$65 to enter doors OPEN at 8AM and Tournament starts at 9AM (includes entry into Saturday morning qualifier, Saturday afternoon strike tournament, & either Sunday final top 16 or Sunday Beat The Clock side tournament for non-finalists)

This is a Group Match Play Qualifying with Random Pairings to start and Tiered Swiss thereafter if available. If Tiered Swiss is not available then we will do Swiss. 12 rounds in total. 7/5/3/1 scoring. After 12 rounds the Top 16 Players make the Main Playoffs on Saturday. We will not have ‘B’ playoffs, you either make the playoffs or you don’t. Everyone will be seeded 1-16. Automatic Tie Breakers will be turned on. The exception to Automatic Tiebreakers will be for 16th position. That position will have a 1 game playoff drawn at random by the tournament director immediately at the conclusion of qualifying. This will be done so all players know who are in the finals, who has choice of banks, and who they are playing the 1st round. Playoffs will be Groups of 4 players, 4 Rounds Total on 3 Game Banks with 4/2/1/0 scoring. Top 2 advance Bottom 2 Eliminated. Final position 1st-16th will be determined solely by your play in the playoffs. No points carry over from qualifying. 16th position is significant. All players who are tied at 16th who participate in the 1 game playoff who do not end up in the top 16 will have there final position in the tournament determined by the score of this one game playoff. So if 10 people are tied for 16th and only 1 makes it to the final the other 9 will have 17th-25th position will be determined by there finishing score/position on that tiebreaker game.

$35 out of the $65 tournament fee gets paid out to top 8 in finals of this tournament.
