What format will top 24 be?

It hasn’t been published by IFPA to my knowledge.

I suspect it will involve a 1-round bye for the upper 8 players. Players 9-24 will play in round 1, head to head best out of 7.  Those 16 players will turn into 8.  The 8 players with byes will merge with the winners from the 9-24 vs matches, and the remaining 16 will battle it out as before. I don’t know the bracket arrangement. Again this is speculation on my part.

When I hear something I will certainly share :)

Rules for a top 24 scenario have been updated. It is basically as I posted above.

STEP ONE is complete. Florida has officially reached the 400 unique player mark.

STEP TWO is almost done.  We are at 89 completed tourneys, and based on current projections, we should reach the 100 unique tourney mark in mid to late October.

It’s coming..... :)

Yes, many props to Donny and all of the other TDs this year who have stepped up to make this happen!
