Eight teams will be spread across two groups, which will then filter into a 4-team, double-elimination bracket.
To decide the teams, the eight captains will compete in a Free For All to determine draft order. This will feed into a snake draft to pick out teams until every available player has been selected.
The prize pool will be handed out as follows:
- 1st: $12,000
- 2nd: $10,000
- 3rd: $8,000
- 4th: $6,000

- 6th: $4,000
- 7th: $3,000
- 8th: $2,000
