Miscellaneous Explanations

 

Cut List
All age divisions are to be open to the highest ranked 32 players who enter per division.  If less than 32 players enter per division, any level player will be accepted.   If there are more than 32 players in any division, players will be placed on a wait list based on their ranking and will only be granted entry if a playing spot opens up.

NOTE: In divisions that have players waitlisted, the 30 highest ranked players have gained entry into the event.  The remaining 2 players to gain entry into the event will be notified by within 48 hours of the release of the Cut List.  This is to allow a grace period for any potential registration errors.

This will indicate the earliest possible match a player can expect within their Division.
