There will be two separate tournaments (brackets) running simultaneously, each with its own winner. One is for players 499 & Under and the other is for players rated between 500-699. Once an established player has played a Tour Stop as a 499 or lower they then have a 10-point cushion if they go above 499. if they go up to 510 or higher they then will have to play the remaining Tour Stops in the 500-699 bracket. They will retain all points earned. Players rated 499 or lower may choose to play up into the 500-699 bracket but will play as a 500.
Players will accrue points for each Tour Stop they play and bonus points for finishing in the cash. To be eligible for the Tour Finale for your bracket you must be in the top third on the M.O.B.
