Want to play in more than one event?
Players are welcome to play in more than one event at the Super Billiards Expo. Please be aware that it is possible that match times might conflict, especially in the later rounds. We do our best to avoid conflicts, but it is impossible to control in events of this size and in this timeframe.

>>  IMPORTANT  <<
If a conflict in match times does arise, you will be forced to choose one event to play and one to forfeit. Unfortunately, we do not have the time and space to rearrange matches for players.

We will not be starting any Waiting Lists for this event.

If it is full, the only way to get in is to show up at the Player’s Meeting and see if there are any last minute openings.

Occasionally people withdraw and a spot may open here online. Sometimes we’ll announce that on our facebook page. If that happens, it’s just first-come, first-served. So, check back in often and keep an eye on our facebook. 

There is no need to call or email asking to get on a list – we will not start a list. 

SAMPLE BRACKET

~ NO REDRAW at 16 PLAYERS ~

EXAMPLE OF TOURNAMENT CHART

~ NO REDRAW at 16 PLAYERS ~

Players continue in their respective bracket. Payouts reflect Finishing Place depending on bracket position.

For example, in the first round of Single Elimination play – eight players will get eliminated. If there was a re-draw, they would finish collectively as 9-16th. 

However, since there will NOT be a re-draw, the four players that were on the One-Loss Side (shown in red) will be considered 13-16th place, and paid accordingly. The players on the Winner’s Side (shown in green) will be considered 9-12 and paid accordingly.

Play and payouts will continue in this manner until two players meet in the Finals. There they will compete for 1st and 2nd place prize money.

This format rewards players who stayed on the Winner’s Side by ensuring they receive more money in each elimination round.
