The Open Singles is our feature event. It is an intense double elimination tournament that requires all day Saturday to complete. All matches in the main tournament are the best 4 games of 7, and there is no leveling - all matches are played straight up. When players are eliminated from the main draw, they qualify for a spin-off tournament with all other players eliminated in the same bracket where they play until they earn their final numerical standing in the overall event. The event plays until 12 players remain who then qualify for the Sunday Texas 12 Challenge Championship. Trophies may be awarded to bracket top finishers pending participation and sponsorship. The top 12 finishers from the Open Singles automatically qualify (at no additional cost) to compete in the Texas 12 Challenge. It is a continuation of the Open Singles with the 12 remaining players who then compete to determine the Texas State Champion. Spinoffs are played for the 9-12, 7/8, and 5/6 brackets. Cash and trophies are awarded to the top finishers based on participation.
