Format

The tournament will be in the swiss format likely with no top cut. Players will be paired up against each other and every round they will play someone else with a similar record to them. After a set amount of rounds, the players with the best scores (with tie-breakers determined by the win percentage of their opponents) will receive their prizes. This means everyone will get to play every round and nobody is eliminated in the tournament!

Sweet thanks Aaron! I'll be attending seniors! Let's see if I can beat you! XD good luck to all though.

Hey, we should try choosing a hotel for everyone to consider staying in, I have seen it at other posts. This way we can all hang out before the tourney!

In for Masters.

Hotel recommendations: Philly is...hit and miss on nice places to stay (some areas are well, rougher than others), so I recommend: http://book.bestwestern.com/bestwes...-Prussia/Hotel-Overview.do?propertyCode=39091 for a nice area without running the risk of having something bad happen.

Near a mall, a few restaurants there, etc. There's other things to do, as well. Off the top of my head, for those unfamiliar with Philly:

The Art Museum (aka the Rocky stairs): http://www.philamuseum.org/

National Constitution Center: http://constitutioncenter.org/ - has the Liberty Bell (though I believe it's roped off, due to vandalism several years ago), and Independence Hall is here too.

The Italian section. http://www.ralphsrestaurant.com/ - I have hyped this place to a few people, and trust me, you will NOT be disappointed in the food here. There's other things in this area, but I do not remember what they are.

Citizen's Bank Park for those of us who are baseball fans (whether you hate the Phillies or not. I believe it's Phillies/lolMets that weekend), and I'm drawing a blank on other things.

i thought u couldnt go if u already won.
any way he might have some competition if my cousin elijah decides to compete (he lives in philly and sometimes beats master divisioner-age people).
and even though i cant imagine it, i know to god i'll end up facing you at philly.
