TitleTown January Knockout Side Tournament:
This tournament is free for everyone playing in the Main Tournament and won’t have any prizes other than IFPA points. It will consist of a 2 game qualifier that everyone plays. You will be ranked and receive points on those 2 games against the whole field. (1st 100, 2nd 90, 3rd 85, 4th 84,83,82,81,80, etc). The 8 people with the most points will play an 8 round playoff to determine the winner. 9th place and lower are eliminated.
You may start qualification for this as soon as the main tournament begins. You play 1 game on 2 different pre-selected games. Qualifying will end as soon as the winner of the main knockout tournament has been determined.
You will be seeded according to qualifier; A group(1,4,5,8) and B group (2,3,6,7). A and B groups will do a 4 round, multi-match game, with IFPA group match play scoring. Games will be pre-selected in advance. Highest seed gets to choose their play order 1st then next highest seed chooses their order etc. The order you choose will be the same on all 4 tables. Multi-match means that all 4 games will be played at the same time with player 1 playing the first ball on game 1; then when that ball drains they move on to game 2 and plays ball 1; meanwhile player 2 steps up to the first game and plays ball 2, etc. Both groups play their 4 games and write down 7-5-3-1 on each game depending on their score. Those scores are added up. The top 2 continue to the finals. The bottom 2 are eliminated. But they will receive a ranking based on their IFPA scores on those 4 games. For example if eliminated player 1 scores 12 points and eliminated player 2 scores 15 points then in the final ranking that is submitted to IFPA player 2 will be ranked higher than player 1. So this way the 4 players eliminated will not all be tied for same position.
The playoffs continue with the top 4 players playing 4 games simultaneously to determine the winner. All ties will be broken with a 1 game playoff drawn at random only for the people that are tied in the top 8.
