After a stop in Florida and two stops in the Midwest, the 2012 PEGT Tour is heading west for its next event.
The Denver Open will take place at Jackson’s on August 9th through the 12th, which is shaping up to be one of the larger tournaments of the year. Power Events always puts on a good show, and this will be no exception. Jackson’s is also situated in the heart of downtown Denver and will be one of the more spacious bars to host a tournament this year.
On Thursday, August 9th the weekend will get underway with a CTTP contest that costs only $10 to enter. The following evening will feature the handicap tournament, where 25% of the field will win their Denver Open tour tournament entry and literally every player has a shot at winning.
The actual Denver Open will begin Saturday with a 5-course qualifier to determine that 32-man tournament bracket. Entry into this tournament is $100, and both Power Events and Jackson’s will be contributing money towards what will be a substantial prize pool.
On Sunday, the main brackets and purple brackets will each participate in double-elimination match play, and a champion will be crowned early evening.
This is definitely an event worth traveling for. For more information on the tournament or to sign up (which you really should do), visit the official tournament thread on Underdogsports.net.
