What is the “point spot” system?
Every player is assessed a skill level from 0 to 6. New players start as a level 0 or 1 depending on their relative skills on the table. The highest master level players have a skill level of 6. At the start of each game, the difference in skill levels is given to the lower skilled player. So, if a level 4 plays a match against a level 1, each game will start at 3-0 in favor of the level 1 player. The maximum allowable point spot is 5 points. Each game of Air Hockey is a race to 7 points. In this double elimination battle, each match will be the best of 3 games. As you can imagine, a level 0 playing a level 5 or 6 is pretty intense! Each game starts a 5-0 in favor of the level 0!
Players can choose to waive their point spot… but that’s just plain crazy with $500 on the line.
The point spot system levels the playing field so anyone can be a champion. The competition is still very fierce… even more fierce because there are no blowouts! Everyone has a chance to take down veteran legends like World Champion Daniel Hynes (TX) or current #1 ranked and #1 rated player in the world, Billy Stubbs (IL).
In 2011, the Houston weekly “point spot” tournaments had 25 unique first place finishers out of 52 weekly tournaments using this system. So far in 2012, there have been 12 unique weekly champions. The system definitely levels the playing field so anyone can win! Anyone can play and anyone can win in this awesome new World Championship event!
First place will be guaranteed a minimum of $500 CASH and become the first ever Goalgrinder 500 Champion!
The entry fee for the Goalgrinder 500 is $20 per player. There are no comps and no freebies. Everyone who plays will pay the entry fee. At the end of the night, someone will be the Goalgrinder champion!
As the playing field is level in this unique event, random seeding will be used. This event will be capped at 64 players. Register now and reserve your spot on the chart!
