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.
