2023 Tournament Format Heats Most Wins -Points

The Stone Age Tournament will consist of 3 Heats of 4-player games (possibly up to three 3-player games); a 64-player Quarterfinal; a 16-player Semifinal; and a 4-player Final. Only winners of games will advance to the quarterfinal. Winners will be ranked by the Heats Most Wins Points standard tiebreakers. If there are not 64 winners, then some winners (based on rankings) may receive byes to the Semifinal. Additionally, if all winners (who have not received byes) do not show up to the quarterfinal, then some winners may receive additional byes. A player must show up to the Quarterfinal to receive a bye. The Quarterfinal games will be seated in NCAA style according to players' rankings. The Semifinal round will be random players assigned to tables and bidding for seat turn order. The Final will also use turn order bidding.
