Match + Multi Play event:
5 rounds guaranteed in the qualifier then we have semifinals for top 8 and finals for top 4. Each final round will be another 4 games using Multi-Play format (IFPA grading this tournament at 64% value).
The qualifier Match Play format will be 5 rounds of 4 player’s games (scored 7/5/3/1 or 7/4/1 for 3 player group).
At the end of 5 rounds, the 8 players (or top 16) with the highest amount of point will move on to the top 8 round (semi-finals).
Final rounds will use the Multi Play format, Each of the two 4 player group in the semi-finals will start a 4 player game on a bank of 4 contiguous machines (Scored 7/5/3/1).
