After a break for Masters Tour: Orgrimmar, this weekend the Grandmasters 2021 Season 1 saw it's fourth weekend of 8 weeks of action that will decide who is going to get relegated from Grandmasters and who is (eventually) going on to compete for the World Championship.
This week was the second of the Specialist format being the chosen match form, which means players bring 1 Class deck, with which they have to play the first game of a Best of 3 series. After that first game the player can choose to stay on the same deck or to bring in a Secondary or Tertiary version of the deck, with each up to 5 cards difference. The series then continues with both players being able to choose from their 3 decks after every match until one of them has won twice.
Since we are posting our article close to the ending of Day 3, not all of the matches might have been put onto YouTube yet, so check the official Hearthstone Esports YT Channel for the uploads later here!

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.
