A player who plays in more than six Grand Prix events is able to discard his or her worst result(s), and therefore it is advantageous to participate in all eight events. $1,250 in prizes will then be awarded, as follows:

1st $300; 2nd $250; 3rd $200; 4th $150; 5th $100; 6th-10th: $50 each .

The following details apply to all eight events:
