Qualifying for the quarterly tournament


Here's how to get into the quarterly free-roll tournament:

1) Earning Points.  Finish in the top 22 points standings for the quarter.  Achieved by top 10 finishes in tournaments with 1st place at each tournament receiving 10 points, 2nd place getting 9 points, and so on, to 10th place receiving 1 point.  Your quarterly points standings rate you with the following starting chips:

1st - 20K 9th - 16K 17th - 12K
2nd - 19.5K 10th - 15.5K 18th - 11.5K
3rd - 19K 11th - 15K 19th - 11K
4th - 18.5K 12th - 14.5K 20th - 10.5K
5th - 18K 13th - 14K 21ST - 10K
6th - 17.5K 14th - 13.5K 22ND - 10K
7th - 17K 15th - 13K  
8th - 16.5K 16th - 12.5K  


2) Random Draw.  At every tournament a player enters during the quarter, he/she is given a ticket to be dropped into a bucket.  Those players making it to the final table get additional tickets equal to the points earned as described in #1 above.
From this bucket of tickets, eight (8) seats will be drawn for seats at the quarterly free-roll tournament and start the tournament with 10K in chips.


3) Sit-n-Go qualifier game.  Ten (10) players will be selected for a Sit-n-Go game based on the next highest quarterly points standings (starting with 23rd place, to 32nd place).  The final 2 seats for the quarterly free-roll tournament will be filled by the top 2 finishers in the Sit-n-Go game.  If names are previously drawn from the bucket or players are unable to make the tournament, the selectees may extend past 32nd place in the quarterly points standings.
