We have 8 players signed up for the Open and 12 for the Reserve with another 8 in the Booster -- and even one person wishing to play in the non-rated event (fingers crossed we'll get more non-rateds!).
Currently the prize fund is $100 for first overall with $50 for first U1800 in the Open. The Reserve will feature $60 for first and $40 for top U1400.
The Booster will include $30 first prize and a trophy. There will also be trophies for second and third in the section along with top U1000, U800, U600 and U400.
But once we hit 32 players, we'll go to $120 for first overall, $60 for second place with $50 for the U1800 in the Open.
And in the Reserve we'll add a second place prize of $40 and first place will grow to $80. Upset prizes will go from $5 per section to $10 -- and that will add $155 to the existing prize fund of around $300. So stay tuned!
