    Apart from the uncertainty over when the qualifiers and satellites will be (there are multiple buy-in levels and DK support didn’t know when each might be held), the tournament is rather odd.

    They made it 68 teams with a play-in round like the NCAA tournament went to.

    I guess it’s random draw and some people get screwed?

    If you lose in the first round, you get $4,000, while if you lose in the play-in round, you get $3,000.

    Would suck to draw the play-in round with a safety net of 1k less.

    They should probably make it that the 8 lowest scores from qualifying that got in would be in play-in games but I doubt they’ll do that.

    But if it were up to me, I would’ve just made it a bracket of 64 (or 32 or 128). 68 just doesn’t make sense.

    This has a similar structure to the NBA one they ran. It’s not a random draw, they’ll run 60 qualifiers that are automatically in the main bracket, and 8 “play-in” qualifiers, for which the ticket has less value, and that’ll be reflected in the buy-in and number of entries for the play-in qualifier. They’ll probably run the play-in qualifiers close to when all of the main qualifiers are done.

    oh ok, thanks

    I just wish I knew dates for each type of qualifier

    I have a ticket to an 11 man qualifier but I don’t know if it’s the last one of that type or if there will be more

    I’d guess it’s for the main qualifier and I would bet there will be another one but if not, DK will expire the ticket and credit the money to your account. For an 11 man qualifier for the main bracket that’s probably about $1000 entry

    Yeah the main bracket matchups are determined by the order you qualify. If you win one of the main qualifiers you’re not going to get thrown into a play-in. Do wish they’d give the date that round 1 starts though

    I won a ticket to this. I know they said late september, but i hope its not like the final week.
