The second annual Old School Player’s Ball will be held on Saturday, August 25 2018, at 12pm, and will be a charity event to raise funds for After School Matters. This tournament is open to all participants 21+ years of age, but you must preregister using this ticket checkout. This year’s event will have a hard cap of 88 players due to venue space, so if you plan to attend, please get pre-registered ASAP to reserve your space.

Tournament structure and length will be SWISS PLUS 1. This event will be capped at 88 players, which normally calls for 7 rounds, so this will be 7+1 (a total of 8) total 50 minute rounds of Swiss. There will be no draws allowed, and at the end of 50 minutes if there is a tied match both players will do a sudden death Chaos Orb flipping contest (complete details in our Old School 93-94 rules here). The point of Old School is to play Old School!
Please be respectful of the venue, the cards, and the people around you, or you will be asked to leave (and unwelcome at future events). Entry fee will be a non-refundable $20 this year, with all proceeds donated to After School Matters, a non-profit organization that provides life-changing after-school and summer program opportunities to more than 15,000 Chicago high school teens each year.
