Qualifying: 7 rounds of four-player match play contests with tiered swiss pairings and IFPA (7,5,3,1) scoring. The top 13 after qualifying will move on to the finals(assuming we have at least 26 entrants, 8-12 will make finals if we have less). Any format changes will be announced prior to tournament start.

Finals: A last man standing format. 13 entrants will be seeded based on their standings after the qualifying rounds, all 13 entrants starting with the #13 seed and down will play individual games on game one, entrant with lowest score is eliminated. Game two the remaining 12 entrants all play individual games in the order in which they advanced from game one, lowest score is eliminated. This process continues until there is 2 entrants left, which one final game will be played in order to determine the winner. Machines will be set to Free Play for the finals games.

Finals notes- During a game, once the entrant reaches the current lowest score, they will drain and plunge any remaining balls. That entrant then will advance to the next game and join the queue, multiple games will be taking place at once this way to save time. The only objective is for an entrant is to not be the lowest score.
