About UTR 6 and Below Quick Set $$ Tourney
Update: 3:20pm Thursday
Here is how this tourney will go down with 6 players. Two pools of 3..so Pool A and Pool B.
Each player will get two matches Friday evening.
Saturday morning will have the 3rd place finisher of each pool play each other and the 2nd place finishers play each other...and of course, the 1st place of each pool play each other....3rd placers at 9am, 2nd placers to follow (10:15am), championship at 11:15 or when the previous match is done.
Pool tiebreakers if there is a tie where everyone is 1-1.
Least games lost in all matches.
Scoring is the Quick Set Format...meaning sets are to 4....but if you split, you play out the 3rd set.
We will play regular scoring...but at 3-3 in a set, a normal end of set tiebreaker is played.
Pool A is Steve Boone, Matt Salm, Alan Winsler
Pool B is Paige Willer, Mark Miller, Nick Banser
Matches start at 5pm Friday 1/19 but look at the draws for your exact match time.
With only having 6 players, we are slightly modifying our prize payout...$120 to winner, $60 to 2nd place
