Masters Points System for 2017 (Single and Double Elimination)

Ten (10) points will be awarded for each match won in the Main bracket, while seven (7) points will be awarded for each match won in the Consolation if there is one. Matches that are won by forfeit for any reason will not count towards the Masters Points total for the winning player.

 

One point will be awarded to a player who completes and loses his first match in a single elimination event. Two points will be awarded to a player who completes and loses his first two matches in a double elimination event.
Bonuses will be given for:

 

  •  First place – 40 points
  •  Second place – 20 points
  • Third place – 20 points

 

Masters Points System for 2015 (Round Robin)

We have a points system specifically for round-robin tournaments, based on the number of matches won, and how many players there are:

 

# of Matches Won
Players 0 1 2 3 4 5
4 2 22 37 60
5 2 15 25 40 65
6 2 11 18 28 46 74

 

If there are two or more players tied for first place as far as record, head-to-head records will be used to determine the overall winner, runner-up, and so on. The head-to-head winner will get 5 bonus points and be considered to be in first place. If there is no clear head-to-head winner (as can be the case with 3 or more players tied) then no bonus points will be awarded, and a tie will be upheld.

 

Events other than the monthly tournaments will not affect one’s standings.  The other events in question may include, but are not limited to, competitions versus other clubs; Internet play; and Jackpot or Knockout events.
