May 2nd Womens Tournament – The Countess Cup.
The Details You’ve Been Waiting For
Tournament Field Size
Chopper’s Womens Only Tournament named The Countess Cup is fast approaching. We are initially setting the field for the double elimination portion of the tournament at 64 players. There will be no lottery for this event. It is first to register gets in. However, we will be including a “wait list” item on the site as well. If you did not get in on time, we will be going in order of the time entry of the wait list. IF the wait list grows to another even amount for a tournament, we WILL be expanding the field.
This will be under IATF playoff rules. Rounds will begin as Best of 5. Tournament will begin Saturday morning at 10am with practice starting at 9am. Seeding will be random.
There WILL be Skills. However, they will NOT be on sale at the same time as Tournament Registration. Based on the need to expand the field, we will determine which skills we open and how many skills available.
Prize Pool will be $3000 and paying out to the 17th place. This means the top 24 throwers will be taking home prize money. This is our deepest paying tournament yet. We hope to continue this in the future as we mentioned in our paying deeper into the brackets blog post.
