    2016 Brisbane Masters

    The 2nd Annual Brisbane Masters event will be held on Friday 29th, Saturday 30th & Sunday 31st July, 2016
    This year’s venue is Toowong Bowls Club, 59 Gailey Rd, Taringa (same venue as the 2015 ACS Tournament)
    This tournament is being held in conjunction with Jimmy Nails and myself.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    FRIDAY 29TH
    BRISBANE FLIP FRENZY

    7pm - 10pm
    $20 entry per player (open to anyone)

    All players are entered into a random draw, with 2 players drawn to play each available machine. First name chosen is the player 1. The rest of the players are placed in one central queue.

    When a game is completed:
    - The loser stays on the same machine, unless he has lost twice in a row, in which case the winner stays on.
    - The player leaving the machine moves to the back of the queue.
    - The player staying on the machine plays in the same position (P1/P2) as he played in the previous game.
    - The player at the front of the queue moves up to play the player staying on.

    At the end of three hours, no more games may start. The winner is the player with the most games won. Ties are broken by fewest losses.

    This is the same format played and ran by Luke on the Friday night last month in Melbourne.
    This also shapes as a great warm up and lead in to the Brisbane Masters on the Saturday & Sunday.

    Registration and payment will be taken on the night. Please don't be late to this one.
    Late players are still welcome to attend and join in though.

    SAT-SUN 30TH-31ST
    BRISBANE MASTERS MAIN EVENT

    NOW BEING CAPPED AT 68 ENTRIES!

    Timing:
    Qualifying will start at 10am on Saturday 30th July. 5 rounds will be played on Saturday. Anticipated finish time on Saturday will be approx. 7-8pm.
    The final round of qualifying will be on Sunday 31st July from 10am.
    Finals on Sunday afternoon are expected to start around 12.30pm and should be finished by around 5-6pm.


    QUALIFYING:


    * Once all participants are finalized, all players will be seeded based on their IFPA rankings position as of 30/6/2016.
    * The games chosen will be based on what is available at the Venue. (minimum 16 machines, list available soon)
    * Qualifying will be played similar to the IFPA World Format.

    Players will be placed into groups of 4 once the seedings have been completed. (4 player games)
    Each group will be assigned 3 games at random. Each game has the same points ... 7 for 1st, 5 for 2nd, 3 for 3rd, 1 for 4th

    First round groupings are as follows: (based on 68 players)
    1,34,35,68 .... 2,33,36,67 .... 3,32,37,66 .... 4,31,38,65 .... 5,30,39,64 .... 6,29,40,63 .... 7,28,41,62 .... 8,27,42,61 .... 9,26,43,60 ....
    10,25,44,59 .... 11,24,45,58 .... 12,23,46,57 .... 13,22,47,56 .... 14,21,48,55 .... 15,20,49,54 …. 16,19,50,53 .... 17,18,51,52

    From then on, groupings are determined from the scoring thereafter as follows:
    1,2,3,4 .... 5,6,7,8 .... 9,10,11,12 .... 13,14,15,16 .... 17,18,19,20 .... 21,22,23,24 .... 25,26,27,28 .... 29,30,31,32
    33,34,35,36 .... 37,38,39,40 .... 41,42,43,44 .... 45,46,47,48 .... 49,50,51,52 .... 53,54,55,56 .... 57,58,59,60 …. 61,62,63,64 .... 65,66,67,68

    All games will be played as a 4-player game (unless machine is unable to allow it).
    Highest placed seed will get to choose their play order for their first match and so on, until all 4 players have chosen.
    The following 2 matches will see the person with the lowest score in the previous game choosing their play order first, until all 4 players have chosen.

    There will be 6 qualifying rounds (18 games per player). The top 24 players will advance to the Finals on Sunday afternoon.
    Ties for any placings in the Top 24 will be determined by a single game playoff, on a machine chosen at random.


    FINALS:

    Round One: (24 players remaining)
    * Top 4 finalists are awarded a bye.
    * Best-of-3 game head to head matches according to final seedings. Highest seed for each match chooses play order for their game (play order reverses for each subsequent game)
    * Matches are determined as follows: 5 vs 24, 6 vs 23, 7 vs 22, 8 vs 21, 9 vs 20, 10 vs 19, 11 vs 18, 12 vs 17, 13 vs 16, 14 vs 15.
    * The 10 Winners advance to Round 2.

    Round Two
    : (14 players remaining)
    * Top 2 are awarded another bye, 3rd & 4th seeds now join in.
    * Best-of 3 game head to head matches according to seedings of remaining players
    * Same as Round 1, with highest seed playing lowest seed, and so on. Same again for choice of machine & order of play.
    * The 6 winners advance to Round 3.

    * 1st & 2nd seed now join in.
    * Same format (best of 3 games, etc) as Round 2 above.

    Had great fun last year and meet some really nice people. Can't wait. Sign me up @Lambo.

    A large for me in the shirt department please.
    Also I could be interested in a second depending on what the configuration is going to be colour wise.
    @Lambo

    Thanks
