For the Championship matches, the individual/team that comes from the losers bracket must beat the “king of the hill” 2 games in a row to win the championship match. If the “king of the hill” wins 1 game before the losers bracket team wins 2, the “king of the hill” is crowned the champion. If there are multiple brackets for a single event, the winners of each bracket will face off for overall 1st, 2nd, etc.

Local Blind Draws- 1st Place- $80, 2nd Place- $40 (approximately 10 local blind draws between both days)- $1,600

TOTAL OF $6,000+ IN POTENTIAL PAYOUTS. That number could easily skyrocket depending on the number of players. The estimated numbers were based on rounding down from the number of players from Conference #2 in MI last season.

Pro, Seniors, Women’s, and Juniors will pay out top 3, unless 20+ register; yet, if less than 10 players in a tournament, then top 2 spots will be paid out. Crew Cup will pay out 1 spot for every 4 teams registered. Local Blind Draws will pay out to the top 2 teams (8 teams max).
