Registration and Check-in:

60 minutes before the tournament starting time.  The registered players are required to check-in (login to the game) 15 minutes before the tournament starts.
Any player that won't play at the tournament for more than 26 minutes in one round may be disqualified and may not be able to join the next round of the competition. Also, your entry fee will not be refunded.


At the end of each round, each player will receive a "table point" according to the score. The table point assignment is as follows:
  • Highest score: 4 pts
  • 2nd highest score: 2 pts
  • 3rd highest score: 1 pts
  • Lowest score: 0 pt
If two (or more) players tie for a position, they share equally the added points. For example 0.5 points each (half of 1 + 0) for two players sharing the last position. Tournament rankings are determined through table points. Players with more table points in a game earn higher placement in the tournament. If a tie in table points occurs between players, the player with the highest overall score will be ranked higher. In the unlikely event that two players are tied in both table points AND overall score, the player that won more hands in the game will be ranked higher.
