Tournament Format and Prize Pool

This is the sixth Tour Stop of HCT Tour Stop 2018 Season three and it will bring together 128 talented players. They will be competing for a share of the prize pool worth $15,000 and will also share some of the 191 HCT points. The format of the tournament doesn’t differ much from what was used in the previous stops of the championship, with four decks being used and the single ban.
All matches will be played in standard mode and conquest, with the winners to be decided at the end of a best-of-five series. The tournament begins with the group stage, where all 128 competitors will participate, since nobody is automatically qualified for the next stage. During this phase of the competition, there will be six rounds of Swiss play and 16 players will advance to the playoffs.
