Great Lakes Pinball Open — Target Match Play Format:

Tournament Starts at 3PM

Tournament will use all 100+ Pinball Machines inside District 82 Pinball. Each round will alternate the era of game played on. Odd Rounds will be LCD/DMD games Even Rounds will be Classics/EM games.

District 82 has never run this format before. Here is how it works.

This is a Group Match Play Tournament with Swiss Seeding and 4 players (3 if necessary) in each group. Scoring is based on player performance for that one machine (3/2/1/0) or (3/2/1). This will be added to a running total for the tournament. The first player to reach 30 points is declared the winner and the tournament is over. If multiple players reach the target score on the same round the player with the higher total is the winner. If they are tied a randomly drawn game will be selected for tie breaker. Only ties between 1st-8th position will be broken with a 1 game tie breaker for the affected players. No playoffs or finals. If the tournament is still going starting at 9:30PM all games drawn will be classics or the B group to help the tournament end faster.

Cash Prizes for 1st-8th

  • 1st 35%
  • 2nd 20%
