Format

The competition was held over six games. The tournament ran as follows:

  1. Participants play a 14-round qualifying game, from which seeds are drawn based on points scored.
  2. Players are split into three groups of three, to each play two games and watch a third.
  3. The groups are recast to form finals groups A, B and C.
  4. A further two games are played and a third game watched by the competitors.
  5. Final standings are calculated based on each player's overall number of games won and then points scored.
