The tournament will be run as a best-of-seven, single elimination bracket with the top 8 ranked players receiving first round byes. There is no entry fee, just quarters needed to play machines. Payouts to all 24 players. DO NOT LEAVE without getting your cash. Don’t make me chase you down, please.
Each match will be a best-of-seven. The higher seeded player will have choice of machine or position for the 1st game, with the loser of each subsequent game having choice of machine or order, until someone has won 4 games. A machine may not be played more than once in the same match.
Each player will have the opportunity for 30 seconds of practice time before starting every game of every match. This is to ensure that both players have a chance to get familiar with the machine.
The winner of the match advances to the next round, while the loser is eliminated.
The 3rd/4th place Consolation Final will be played as a best-of-three instead of a best-of-seven like all other rounds, using the same rules. This match is required due to payouts.
