Double elimination 10-ball with redraw at final 64 players.
All matches are handicapped using FargoRate. Players must have established Fargo rating to participate with a minimum robustness of 1,000 games.
This event is bracketed by rating. The players are seeded in descending order from highest rating to lowest rating. 16 brackets of 16 players each are assembled with the top 16 players included in a sub-bracket and randomly drawn, followed by the next 16 players in a sub-bracket and randomly drawn, and so on creating 16 sub-brackets composed of players with similar handicaps.
All 16 sub-brackets play double elimination until the final four players for each sub-bracket are determined. These final 64 players are then assembled in a random re-draw and play a new double-elimination tournament.
Using the Fargo medium chart, race is to 11 for the highest-ranked player, with the lowest-ranked player required to win a minimum of 4 games. If the highest-ranked player’s Fargo rating is below 550, the race for the highest-ranked player is 8 games.
Rules specific to Havoc $1 Million 10-ball event
Players will alternate the break, and lag for the first break. If both players agree, they may flip a coin for the first break. The winner of the lag has the option to break or defer to the other player.
Any player more than 15 minutes late for their match will be forfeited. There is no requirement for the opponent to notify officials. The officials will verify that all matches start as scheduled and that players are present.
Any player requesting that a shot be viewed by officials does so with the understanding that the official’s ruling is final (with the exception of available challenges)-- officials will use slow motion video for all shots viewed in the event it requires further review. Players will receive a total of 4 challenges throughout the event if they dispute the ruling. If a player has no challenges remaining, the official’s ruling is final.
Featured tables (televised and/or streamed) will have officials for the duration of the match. Officials may stop play for review if they deem necessary in order to review shots or to establish a vantage point for proper officiating.
Template racks will be used and provided by Havoc.
Every match will begin with a random rack pattern disclosed with their scorecard and must be used for every game played in that match.
Only cue ball fouls will be enforced with two exceptions-- if a player inadvertently touches 2 or more object balls; or a player inadvertently moves a ball into the path of any moving ball after shooting.
The template rack may only be moved by a player if balls are not resting on it. Template racks may be removed by an official upon request by the player.
For featured table matches, all racking and removal of template racks will be done by the official.
A COMPLETE LIST OF ALL RULES WILL BE PROVIDED ON THE WEBSITE ONCE THE EVENT IS OPEN FOR ENROLLMENT.
