Triple Flip Open #1 — Target Match Play Classics Format:

This is a Group Match Play Tournament with Swiss Pairing 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. If they are tied a randomly drawn game will be selected for tie breaker. A tie for first place will result in a 1 GAME Tie Breaker randomly chosen from the classics group. Ties between 2nd-4th and 8th position will be broken with a 1 BALL game tie breaker for the affected players to determine the trophy and/or cash received. 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.

Triple Flip Open #2 — Double Up Match Play Format:

Tournament Should Start about 3PM

We will use all 100+ Pinball Machines inside District 82 Pinball. Each round will consist of your 4 player (3 player when necessary) group playing a 2 game bank each round. We will play 7 rounds total (14 Games Total), tiered swiss pairings. Each bank will consist of a classics pin (1991 and older non DMD style) and a modern pin (1992 DMD or LCD game). You will play each game one at a time (Not Multi-Match). Once you finish both games you turn in your sheet with the results. You will get 7/5/3/1 or 7/4/1 scoring on each game. So a maximum of 14 points per round. The person with the most points at the end of 7 rounds is the winner.

A tie for first place will result in a 1 GAME Tie Breaker randomly chosen by the tournament director. Ties between 2nd-4th and 8th position will be broken with a 1 BALL game tie breaker for the affected players to determine the trophy and/or cash received. 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.

Cash Prizes for 1st-8th

Trophies or Plaques for 1-4

Triple Flip Open #3 — Progressive 10 Strike Knockout Tournament:

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. You may stay and play all the games on free play the rest of the afternoon. We alternate between A (DMD/LCD) & B (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-4th and 8th position will be broken with a 1 BALL game tie breaker for the affected players to determine the trophy and/or cash received. 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.
