Brackets and Format
The exact format of the Professionals’ and the Open depends on the number of players that we end up getting in each competition. This will also determine how many places are paid and the precise balance between Main and Last Chance prizes. What will not change is that there will be 4 preliminary rounds in each competition. Full details of the competition structure and pay-out structure will be published before Round 2 begins at 1:30 p.m. on 27th.
