Frequently Asked Questions

When do applications close? Will late entries be accepted?
We will stop accepting applications on Monday, May 9. Any late entries are subject to rejection and are guaranteed to be placed on the waitlist, if accepted.

If I do not qualify under an exemption category, why do I need to submit a cover letter and tournament resume?
Submitting a cover letter and tournament resume allows players to provide explanation for anything we cannot see based on your tournament scoring history. We prefer to see more tournament scores than your ranking may represent.

What should I do if I already submitted my application but have an update or forgot to attach a file?
