BUT PLEASE NOTE:
Due to a smaller draw than anticipated, there is an chance that this tournament could finish on Saturday and if all remaining players are in agreement, we could choose to play the final on Saturday night, which would save on travel expenses for out-of-town players and venue costs, thus increasing the prize pool. Time considerations will come into play, but this may be an option.

Players will be ranked in the league table based on their performance over the course of the 19 weeks of competition, earning 2 points for a WIN, 1 point for a DRAW and 0 points for a loss. 

PLAYOFFS

At the end of 19 weeks of play, the Top 8 players in the league will advance to the playoffs, seeded based on their rank.
