The tournament board is chock-full of action this weekend and features a $10,000 tournament with racing action from Saratoga and Del Mar.
Entries for the large dollar contest will remain open until the contest officially kicks off at 5:04pm EDT, or until the capacity of 67 players is reached. The entry fee is $175. The contest consists of races 9-12 from Saratoga and races 1-8 from Del Mar.
Players have one last opportunity to qualify for the $10,000 tournament in an early afternoon qualifying contest. That contest awards 4 berths into the tournament, all of which will be reserved for the top four players. The entry fee for the qualifying tournament is $29 and is limited to the first 28 players which sign up. The first race of the qualifying contest begins at 1pm.
Also taking place on Saturday is the 1st DerbyWars NHC Qualifying tournament. Eleven players will compete for a seat in next year’s NHC tournament and an accompanying travel package. Each of those players secured their spot in the contest by winning a prequalifying tournament on the site over the past several weeks. Prequalifying tournaments for future NHC Qualifiers take place daily on DerbyWars during the month of August. Players may not purchase into tomorrow’s NHC Qualifier, but may participate in the NHC Prequalifier for a spot in next weekend’s qualifier.
Three qualifying tournaments for Sunday’s $5,000 High Stakes Tournament will be offered on the Saturday menu of tournaments, including two in the early afternoon and one in the early evening. Winners of each will receive a $475 token which is used as entry into the Sunday high roller contest. The $5,000 High Stakes Tournament is limited to twelve players and awards a $4,000 grand prize; the runner-up receives $1,000.
A wide variety of tournaments fill out the game board this weekend, including head-to-head contests, small table games, Lockdown formats, survivor style games and more.
