AREA Ratings

GM: Bill Edwards

Another Year, the Same Format ????

Round 1: Players will be matched by Random Selection. If there are an odd number of players then the most recent WBC Up Front Champion will receive a bye (only one bye per Champion).

Round 2 through 5: Players will be matched against players with similar records. If there are an odd number of players then a bye will be given to a player randomly selected from those with the worst record. No player may receive more than one bye.

Each round will be 90 minutes.

The top eight players will compete in a three-round single elimination final.
