EF $100 thru Nov 25th, $120 thereafter. Prize Fund is $60 per entry, per section, with the winner of each section getting 60% of that section’s prize fund and 2nd place getting 40%.
EXAMPLE: If 12 players are in Class A then the total prize fund for Class A would be 12 x $60 = $720. First place would win $432, and 2nd would be $288. If 18 players are in Class B then the total prize fund for Class B would be 18 x $60 = $1,080. First place would win $648, and 2nd would be $432. Etc.
Yes, lower rated sections could have higher prize funds than higher rated sections. Isn't that a nice change of pace? It all depends on the number of players in each section.
CANCELLATION POLICY: If you cancel and request a refund $15 will be deducted for processing fees, OR you may use the entire amount as a credit toward a future tournament entry fee. NO REFUNDS WITHIN 24 HOURS OF ROUND 1, but your entire payment can be credited towards a future entry fee.
