16 Briarwood Terrace, Fairmont, WV
Qualifying from 4:00pm-10:00pm on Friday for both Classics and Main.
Qualifying on Saturday from 9:00am-4:00pm for both Classics and Main.
Any games started prior to 4:00pm on Saturday will be allowed to finish.
The cost to enter the tournament will be $10 for the Main Tournament and $5 for the Classics Tournament. Entry fees will allow for unlimited entries. Machines will be on coin drop. Finals games will not be on coin drop.
Qualifying scoring will be done in "Best Game Format" in order to determine seeding for Finals. Should there be a tie for any position heading in to the Finals, that tie will be broken by a one game Playoff to break the tie, with the winner of that game getting the higher seed.
Best Game Format: Players can play games as much as they want during the qualifying time period. Only a player's best score on each machine will be counted. A players final ranking will be determined by their best score from ALL games in the Tournament bank. Game scoring will be 100-90-85-84... format.
Finals (for BOTH Tournaments) will consist of a head-to-head “Best Of Five Games” with higher seed picking either machine or order for first game of each round, with the loser picking in each subsequent game of the round. A machine can only be picked once per round (both players combined). Machines deemed "Classics" will be available for play in the Classics Finals, while ALL working machines at the location will be available for play in the Main Tournament.
At the end of qualifying for Classics, the Top 4 players will make the Finals. At the end of qualifying for the Main Tournament, the Top 8 players will make the Finals. No waiting on machines will be allowed for the Finals, so an unoccupied machine must be chosen when the Round starts. Seeding for Classics Finals will be 1 vs. 4 and 2 vs. 3 with the winners meeting in the next round to play for the Championship. A single game between the losers of the initial round will be held to determine 3rd Place. Seeding for Main Finals will be in a 1-8, 2-7, 3-6, 4-5 format with the 1-8 winner facing off against the 4-5 winner in Round 2 and the 2-7 winner playing the 3-6 winner. Third Round will consist of the Championship Match and the single game Consolation Match (to determine 3rd and 4th Place Finishers).
100% of entry fee monies will be paid out to Top Finishers. Total prize money determined by number of participants. Prize monies will distributed in the following order: For Main Tournament 1st Place: 50%, 2nd Place: 25%, 3rd Place: 15%, 4th Place: 10%.
