Join us August 13th for a huge event in Grand Rapids! A intense one-day open tournament with exciting prizes and trophies. Based upon attendance there is a $1800 prize fund. We will host an Open section and a Booster section. The Booster will be played at quicker time controls and will have it's own prize fund and is for U1000 players.

There will be special prizes in the open section. Top Junior, Top Female, and Top Senior prizes will be awarded! It will be an exciting day where the open section plays five rounds and so does the booster. Check out the information below!
