The weekly tournaments will offer a cash prize to the top three of $500 / $300 / $200 respectively, and the top nine players will receive points broken down as such:
- 1st - 100 points
- 2nd - 70 points
- 3rd - 45 points
- 4th - 25 points
- 5th/6th - 10 points
- 7th/8th - 5 points
- 9th - 1 point
These points will count towards qualification for the end-of-season Regional Finals, for which the top four in each division will qualify.
Held every Saturday, the two regions will alternate, seeing five weeks of play each before both Regional Finals are held on November 3.
The events will take the format of a standard double-elimination bracket, with best-of-three matches. For Winners' Finals, Losers' Finals and Grand Finals of each tournament, matches will be best-of-five.
