We announced this before, but now we have the invite link to share. There is no registration fee, and anyone can play, no country limitations (of course, you have to be able to make the times as listed).
The details, copied from the last post:
- The Snap.fan April Open is schedule for Saturday, April 15.
- Start time is 12pm (noon) EST. 9am PST. 4pm GMT. (same as last time!)
- 8 rounds of Swiss into a top-8 cut. Top-8 will be best-of-1 until the finals.
- Total prize pool is $250 USD + $100 gift cards for a combined $350 total. Prize support will be a little flatter.
