Road to Playoffs
The Grandmasters Season 1 is divided into 7 weeks of weekly tournaments, where everyone scores points for their results that week. After those 7 weeks the Top 8 in the points standing in each Region will play in an 8th and final week of competition to decide who goes to the World Championship. The bottom four in the points standings on the other hand will automatically relegate from Grandmasters. The remaining 4 players who ranked 9th through 12th remain Grandmasters, but do not get to play for a spot in the World Championships this season.
Below is a graphic that shows both the monetary gain as well as the points players can score each week.
