Format
In order to win the tournament, the player must first achieve 24 points and then place 1st or achieve at least 40 points total. The first win condition precedes the second.

Tiebreakers (in order): If no one achieves the first win condition and 2+ players achieve 40+ points on the same round:
1) The player with the highest points wins
2) The player with the best placement average overall wins
3) The player with the most 1st places overall wins
4) The player who scored the highest in the last round wins

Points:
1st: 10
2nd: 8
3rd: 7
4th: 6
5th: 4
6th: 3
7th: 2
8th: 1

Prize Pool ($200 USD)
1st Place - $200 and direct qualification to the next upcoming NA Qualifier event

If a player qualifies to a Qualifier Event and/or the NA Regional Finals through both tournament and ladder, the tournament qualification will take precedence over ladder. If a player qualifies for a Qualifier Event through both Open Qualifiers (OQs) and the Challenger Series, the Challenger Series will take precedence over OQs.
