BEAT THEM: The Heads-Up Challenge
On March 5 at 14:00 ET, 32 players will compete for the Heads-Up Challenge Trophy. The 32 players will be made up of a combination of Team Pro Online members and online qualifiers. The highest-placed qualifier will receive $5,000 cash, and if a qualifier wins the Heads-Up Challenge they will get a $10,000 EPT Grand Final package!
To qualify for the Heads-Up Challenge, you must win your seat in the qualifying tournament held on Tuesday, March 1 at 14:00 ET, which has a buy-in of $11.
The Heads-Up Challenge itself will begin on March 5 at 14:00 ET and play down to four players. The semi-finals will play out as best-of-three matches, starting March 6 at 14:00 ET, with the final (also best-of-three) following at 16:00 ET. Be sure to tune in with our Team Pro Online Twitch channels to not miss the action!
BACK THEM: Predict the winner and play for an EPT Grand Final package
Even if you don’t qualify for the Heads-Up Challenge you can still win one of two $10,000 EPT Grand Final packages! Every player who takes part in the Heads-Up Challenge qualifier on March 1 will receive a Backing ticket. Use your ticket to register for one of 32 freeroll tournaments - one for each of the participants in the Heads-Up Challenge. The freeroll named for the eventual winner will run at 14:00 ET on Monday, March 7, with a $5,000 prize pool and EPT Grand Final packages for the top two players. The remaining 31 freerolls will be cancelled, so do your best to predict the winner!
Want to increase your chances of winning by backing more than one player to win the Heads-Up Challenge? Members of Team Pro Online will announce on Twitter how you can get additional Backing tickets in the week running up to the tournament. Follow them to not miss any!
