Open Bracket Format

The 64-Man Open Bracket will be randomly split into two groups of 32 Players. Each group will compete over 5 rounds of Swiss, with the top 4 from each group qualifying for the $50,000 Founder’s Tournament.

  1. Players will compete over 5 rounds of Swiss style play
  2. Players who competed in the HRX Qualifiers will be soft seeded in the first round of Swiss, and the rest randomized. Players will then be assigned an opponent to face based on these seedings.
  3. Pairings will compete in a Best of Three set, with each set win awarding 1 point.
  4. Subsequent rounds of Swiss will randomly pair players of the same, or similar, records.
  5. After 5 Rounds of Swiss, the 4 players with the most points from each group will earn qualification to the Founder’s Tournament held on Saturday, January 6th.
  6. Tiebreakers will be determined in the following order;
    1. Head to Head – Number of set wins versus all tied opponents.
    2. Game Differential – Total number of Games won minus games lost within sets.

Full tournament rules will be released in the coming weeks.

$50,000 Founder’s Tournament
