2023 Triple Flip Open Tournaments

3 Tournaments over 2 Days – New Format – Certified Classics Main Event

Saturday will feature an all Classics Certified Main Event Qualifying then a Progressive Knockout Tournament using all games that night. Sunday will have the finals for the Main Event and a Target Match Play Tournament using all games at the same time. These 3 Tournaments will have prize money. We will also have a 4th ‘warm up’ tournament that counts for IFPA points, but no cash prizes on Friday Night June 23rd.  Registration for the Friday night tournament opens 15 minutes after the Triple Flip Open at 11:15AM. You can click this link for more info and/or to register for that tournament. Friday Night Registration Link: https://district82.com/event/8-fair-strikes-knockout-tournament-triple-flip-open/

Main difference in the format from last year is we are not doing 3 ‘equal points’ tournaments and combining for an overall prize this year. This year we have a Main Event with finals, 2nd Tournament, and a 3rd tournament that will be held simultaneously with the finals of the main event. Plus a 4th tournament on Friday night if you want to come a day early and get some more pinball.

Live Stream:

All tournaments will be live streamed on Twitch with Fox Cities Pinball Stream Here: https://www.twitch.tv/foxcitiespinball

$190 Per Player ($110 Admission to District 82 $80 to Prize Pools). This pays for all 3 tournaments Saturday-Sunday. District 82 pays sales tax, IFPA fees, trophies, etc out of admission costs. 100% of prize pool money goes to players as money prizes. This $190 cost is PAID IN ADVANCE WHEN YOU REGISTER. Not at the door when you arrive. Please read the refund policy below. If you pay and then cancel you WILL NOT get 100% of your money back.

The Friday Night 8 Fair Strike Knockout is separate from the the Triple Flip Open and has a separate charge and registration. $25 Cost paid at the door. Registration link is above for this event.

Capacity

150 Players for these tournaments

Registration:

Registration Opens April 8th at 11AM Central Time. Don’t pay until you are registered!

I will be registering up to 10% of the register list, 15 people, in advance whom are either sponsors, last years winner, and those helping to make this event happen. Also, The IFPA Board of Directors (they don’t count in the total).

Registration for The Triple Flip Open is a 2 step process

  1. Secure your spot – be one of the first 150 people to register on this site when registration opens on April 8th at 11:00AM Central Time — That is the rush part and is the same it has always been for all my events. Exactly at 11AM a blue button that says ‘Register’ will appear (you need to hit F5 to refresh your browser). Click that button and give me your name and email then click submit. You can only register for one person at a time. Once you have secured your spot the rush is over, take a minute, and correctly pay for it.
  2. Pay for your registration – April 8th, after you register above, pay with a credit card by clicking the “Buy Now” button below which takes you to Square Pay or sending [email protected] a pay pal with the required funds. Pay Pal you can use either merchant or friends and family. Make sure you put your name that you registered with somewhere in the notes of the payments. I have to manually check the registration and payment systems separately and match them up. You can pay for more that one person at a time, just give me a note or send an email as to whom you are paying for. You can also pay cash for a $10 Discount ($180 Total), but only if you are coming to the April 11th Tilt’n Tuesday or Great Lakes Pinball Open on April 14th-16th. Just send me an email saying you are going to pay in full on one of those dates. All sales taxes, fees, etc, are in that cost. If you pay first and don’t secure a registration your money will be refunded (less any fees incurred by District 82). Follow the instructions and Register First, Pay Second. Make sure you read and understand the Refund Policy stated below.

THIS $190 NEEDS TO BE PAID BY NOON ON SUNDAY APRIL 9th. STARTING AT NOON ANYONE NOT PAID WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE REGISTERED LIST AND THE NEXT PERSON ON THE WAITING LIST WILL BE REGISTERED AND GIVEN 1 DAY TO PAY THE REGISTRATION FEE.

I will not be offering individual tournament registrations on these tournaments.

Pay for your entry into all 3 tournaments using the button below AFTER you secure your spot in the Triple Flip Open. Do not pay any money if you are not registered. Do not pay any money if you are on the waitlist. You will be contacted by email if you move up from waitlist to registered.

DO NOT ‘BUY NOW’ UNTIL YOU’RE REGISTERED ABOVE!

Tournament Formats:

Main Event Qualifying 

Saturday June 24th, 2023
8AM Doors Open for Practice
9AM Tournament Starts
4:30PM Projected End Time

The Group Match Play Qualifier will be played in groups of 4 (3 when necessary).
Random Seeding to start, then Tiered Swiss Style thereafter. If Tiered Swiss not available then Swiss will be used. MatchPlay Software will most likely be used for the tournaments.
Each Round will consist of a 2 games played 1 at a time on the older, ‘classic’ games at D82.
You will receive 3/2/1/0 scoring on each game
Automatic Tiebreakers will be turned on
Once 10 rounds are played (20 Games Total) the top 24 players make it to the final
8th & 24th place will not use the Automatic Tiebreakers. All players tied with the same amount of accumulated points for the 8th or 24th position will have a 1 GAME tiebreaker to determine who gets into the final and who doesn’t. This 1 GAME tiebreaker is significant and will result in the final placing for all players who finish 25th or worse in the tournament. Example. We have 10 players with the same amount of points who finish from 21st-30th in qualifying. They all get to play a 1 GAME tiebreaker. The person with the lowest tiebreaker score finishes the tournament in 30th place.

Game List

Game list for the Classics Main Event Qualifying as of May 2023 is listed below. This may change a little as we get closer to the tournament date but will be very close.

The other tournaments may use all the games and alternates between newer and older each round. The complete list of pinball machines at District 82 is here: https://district82.com/game-list/

Because of the number of players some groups will be playing game 1 on a certain game and then a second group may have that same machine as their game 2. Just wait for the 1st group to finish then play your game.

If a game goes down and cannot be repaired quickly you will be given a replacement game.

Event 2: 10 Strike Progressive Knockout

Saturday June 24th, 2023
5:30PM-Midnight

You will play in groups of 4 players (3 when necessary), random seeding to start, then swiss style pairing thereafter. You will get 0/1/2/3 strikes per round (1 game per round). Once you receive 10 strikes you are out of the tournament. Once eliminated, you may stay and play all the games on free play the rest of the night. We alternate between A (1992 & newer DMD/LCD) & B (1991 & older Classics) Groups each round. Your final position will be determined by the round and number of strikes you have. Example if you go into a round with 8 strikes and someone else in a different group goes into a round with 7 strikes; you both get 4th place adding 3 strikes to your total. You would have 11 strikes and finish behind the person who ended the same round with only 10 strikes.

A tie for first place will result in a 1 GAME Tie Breaker randomly chosen by the tournament director. Ties between 2nd-8th position will be broken with a 1 GAME game tie breaker for the affected players to determine the trophy and/or cash received. Game will be selected by tournament director and the game itself will be either classic or modern based on what the next game choice would be been. When reporting this to IFPA for points those ties will be reported as such except a tie for 1st place. 1st Place is significant and will be reported as a win and not a tie. We will not be switching to all classics at 10PM as has been customary in the past at District 82. No playoffs or finals.

Cash Prizes for 1st-8th

Event 3: 30 Points Target Match Play 3/2/1/0 scoring

Sunday June 25th, 2023
9:00AM Start Time
5PM Projected End Time

This tournament is going to run at the same time as Main Event finals but not use the same games. Any player from the finals can play in this tournament at the same time if they choose too but they run the risk of an intentional delay of more than 60 seconds. They can absolutely join the tournament late if they choose to also. They would just start at 0 points on whatever round we are on. 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 (3/1.5/0). 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. A tie for first place will result in a 1 GAME tiebreaker. If there is a tie between 2nd-4th position it will be broken with a 1 GAME tie breaker for the affected players to determine the trophy and/or cash received. To be clear a tiebreaker will only occur if the software says you are tied. If someone finishes with the same amount of points as someone else but Match Play gives those players distinct finishing positions from the Automatic Tiebreakers being turned on, we will go with what the match play software says. Tiebreaker game will be randomly selected. When reporting this to IFPA for points those ties will be reported as such except a tie for 1st place. Also the overall series points will be a tie as well. 1st Place is significant and will be reported as a win and not a tie. No playoffs or finals.

Main Event Finals

Sunday June 25th, 2023
9:15AM Start Time
4PM Projected End Time

No practicing on the games in any of the finals banks at all on Sunday. This includes are people not in the finals too. Rows 7 & 8 will be designated as the finals section for this tournament. Rows 1-6 will be used for the Target Match Play Tournament.

Top 24 Players from the Main Event Qualifying will play in the Finals. No points carry over from qualifying. You will finish the overall tournament somewhere between 1st and 24th based on your performance in finals. If someone doesn’t show up the 25th or next highest person from qualifying available will take there place. The format will consist of 4 rounds of 3 game banks. Top 8 qualifiers get a 1st round bye. Groupings for first round will be (9th, 16th, 17th, 24th), (10th, 15th, 18th, 23rd), (11th, 14th, 19th, 22nd), (12th, 13th, 20th, 21st) Games will be played one at a time. High seed in each group will get choice of Bank AND Order on 1st game. Subsequent games the order choice is reversed with 4th place getting to pick first, then 3rd place next, etc. The games that are in the banks will be similar or the same as the ones used in qualifying but will have 3 classic pins in each bank. Scoring will be 4/2/1/0 for each of the 3 games. Top 2 advance bottom 2 are eliminated. Should there be a tie for 2nd/3rd place a 1 game playoff will be played by the 2 affected players. That game  will be chosen at random by the TD.

The 8 Eliminated players from 1st round will ranked 17th-24th according to how many points they accumulated in this round. Ties will not be broken.

In the Quarterfinal Round, the players advancing from the previous round will be reseeded according to their original ranks and divided into four groups as follows.

16 Players

Group 1:  1    8    9   16
Group 2:  2   7   10  15
Group 3:  3   6   11  14
Group 4:  4   5   12  13

The 8 eliminated players will be ranked 9th-16th according to the accumulated points in this round. Ties will not be broken.

For the Semifinal Round, the 8 players advancing will be divided into two groups of four. The groups will be organized according to the original qualifying rank as shown here:

8 Players

Group 1:   1    4   5   8
Group 2:   2   3   6   7

The 4 eliminated players from this round will be ranked from 5th-8th based on the accumulated points from this round. Ties will not be broken.

The four remaining players advance to the final round. The final round is conducted in the same manner as the Semifinal Round. The total scores for this round will determine the ordering of the winners. All ties in the final round are considered significant and will be broken with a 1 game playoff. The final reporting of points to IFPA will show 1st-4th place with no ties.
