WORLD CUP COMPETITION FORMAT
In both the Playoffs and the Finals, players will be requested to play 2x TRIPLE BATTLES throughout the weekend.
What’s a TRIPLE BATTLE?
A Triple Battle is simply 3 Battle Royale Matches, held back-to-back. Players must do this twice in the Playoffs. Winners will have to do it twice again in the Finals.

In a Triple Battle, each Battle Royale starts every hour for three consecutive hours. For example, if the first Battle Royale is held at 1pm, then the second will start at 2pm and the third at 3pm.
Because each Battle Royale lasts for about 45 minutes, we expect a Triple Royale to last for 2 hours and 45 minutes. Please set aside 3 hours – and you will have to play TWO of these over the weekend.
At the end of each Battle Royale, players will receive scores in exactly the same way as during our Premiership Seasons: 5 points for having the highest score in your Match Ladder, 4 points for second-most, all the way to 0 points for coming 6th.
Because a Triple Battle consists of three back-to-back Battle Royale matches, each player will receive a score between 0 and 15 for each Triple Battle.
Because players must play two TRIPLE BATTLES throughout the weekend, by the end of the Playoff weekend, all players will have a score from 0 to 30.
We will show all players’ scores on a ladder.
The top 36 players will then be invited to play in the Finals.
The Finals will be held the following weekend in exactly the same manner as the Playoffs.
After all 36 players have played two Triple Battles, the single player with the highest score will be declared the winner – and the World Match Poker Champion in their Rating Tier.
Any ties will be broken by counting the net chips won/lost by each player.
The Ruby World Champion will also be crowned the overall World Cup winner!
