BEST OF THE REST

 
To give teams that were close to qualifying (losing in the finals) for WPQ one more chance to get into the tournament Greater Seattle APA is holding a Best of the Rest playoff on Memorial Day weekend to fill in the WPQ tournament board.
 
This tournament is by invitation-only to eligible teams.
 
The requirements for a player to participate in this tournament are the same as for Tri-Cups. Teams must play with their Spring roster.  In addition, any team with a past due balance will be ineligible unless the past due balance is paid. 
 
Tournament Structure: 
• Single Elimination team tournament with modified races
• Teams choose 3 players to participate in each match 
• Team races:  8-Ball—best out of 3 matches using the 3-point scoring system; 9-Ball—race to 31 points OR 30 points and 2 wins
• Since the team race is modified the team skill level limit for 3 matches is 14 instead of 23
• In 9-Ball, only 1 senior skill level player (6 or higher) allowed per match 
• No cash payout; qualifying tournament only
• The number of teams qualifying for WPQ via the Best of the Rest tournament in both 8-Ball and 9-Ball will depend on the number of entries and slots available
 
Tentative schedule:
9-Ball at 9:30; 8-Ball at 2:30 
Venue TBD
