There will be a competition this year.Hi - looking forward to this years event. Will there be a competition held again this year? I missed out last time so keen to enter this time.
Where do I register and when for the comp?
people qualify on the scores of only three games?There will be a competition this year.
There'll be no need to register before the day, but you will obviously need to buy entry into the show.
Format will be:
Qualify by playing any 3 games (of your choice) out of 10 to create your entry.
Play as many entries as you want. £10 first entry, further entries £5.
Top 24 qualify for seeded best of 3 head to head knockout, with top 8 getting a bye for 1st round.
All games used in knockout are predetermined, meaning no chance of anyone playing the same game twice en route to the final, and they'll be from a mix of eras.
Prize pot is estimated to be (based on previous numbers of entrants in similar comp) in UK:
1st 35% of prize pot = £500
2nd 20% of pp = £275
3rd 15% of pp = £205
4th 10% of pp = £135
5th-8th 5% of pp = £65
