10 Strike progressive knockout tournament | 4 PM Practice | 5 PM Tournament Start | Cost $25 | Limited to 150 contestants.


You will play in groups of 4 players (3 when necessary), with random seeding to start, then swiss-style pairing afterward. You will get 0/1/2/3 strikes per round (1 game per round). Once you receive ten strikes, you are out of the tournament. Once eliminated, you may stay and play all the games on free play for the rest of the night. Matchplay will alternate random games each round. Your final position will be determined by the round and number of strikes you have. For example, if you go into a round with eight strikes and someone else in a different group goes into a round with seven strikes, you both get 4th place, adding three strikes to your total. You would have 11 strikes and finish behind the person who ended the same round with only ten strikes.


A tie for first place will result in a 1 GAME Tie Breaker randomly chosen by the tournament director. Ties between 2nd-8th position will be broken with a 1 BALL game tie-breaker for the affected players to determine the trophy and/or cash received. The game will be randomly selected. When reporting this to IFPA for points, those ties will be reported as such except a tie for 1st place. 1st Place is significant and will be reported as a win and not a tie. No playoffs or finals. 

Cash Prizes for 1st - 8th,  trophies or plaques for 1st - 4th
