ADV OU Global Championship is a standard ADV OU Tournament with a goal to find the best ADV OU player of the year. Previous winners are Lavos and Star .

Each round will consist of 2 stages. In the first stage, each player will be given 2 sets of pairings in which they play a first-to-2-win match (best-of-3 excluding ties) vs their opponent. After the first stage is completed and the host has determined wins, players who win both their matches go through to the next round, while players who lost twice are eliminated. The players who have won 1, lost 1, battle it out in a tiebreaker FT2W match in stage 2 to join the two-time winners in the next round; or the player wins the tournament in the case of a final. In a 3-way final, an FT2W 3-way round-robin is played, to determine the winner, and repeated if necessary.

The prize returns from last year: a $50 (or equivalent) Amazon gift card will be given out to the winner!
The winner will also earn the right to display
in their signature.
