For all participants and in-person guests, we will host a Calcutta Player Auction. After pool play and before bracket play we will have a player auction. Anyone wanting to bid/buy a player puts up the money and if that player wins the tourney, the bidder/owner wins the pot. Any players not purchased will be auctioned off as "the field". Players that were purchased can opt to "SPLIT" the cost and will split the winnings with the owner. Players can own themselves but obviously must outbid all others. Bidders/owners must be present to take home the cash and any bidder/owner not present at the conclusion of the tournament will forfeit the pot to the winning player.
