This year we have decided to remedy the problem by increasing the venue fee significantly for those choosing to wait, and have adopted the now popular ‘death pool’ scenario. If you register for any tournament day of, you will be placed into a bracket that is unseeded and to be played as a separate pool from players that preregistered. If the bracket for the tournament is smaller than 32 players, you will be included in that bracket but still unseeded and given no opportunity for byes. It is highly recommended that you avoid this, and save yourself and our staff the hassle. Game Rules: To be updated soon. Hotel Info: These 3 listed below we have had players stay at and be satisfied with their stay, so I recommend them.
