Participation

The tournament will take place on 20-21 of April 2019 worldwide, all registered countries are welcome to take part. Every country has 10 slots in total - five for speed female and five for speed male category. If your country has more than five people willing to take part in a single WPT category, you need to contact your representative to learn about the elimination round in your country.

Players who cannot physically join the event in the country that has a representative have the right to join the event from the location of their choice if a) their representative agrees to include them and b) they submit their scores to their representatives following the video and guidelines* for solo players.

Solo players that do not have a representative in their country would need to fill in the registration form for the tournament (published on 9th of April on the main page) no later than April 19th 23:00 (GMT+0) in order to take part in the tournament.

Players can represent a country if they hold one of the following:

  • A citizenship of the country

  • A permit to work in the country

  • A residency permit (passport or any other document that grants the residence)

Organizers have the right to demand such documents from the players. If such documents cannot be presented within 24 hours upon the request, the player will be disqualified.

Tourist visas do not give the right to represent the country.

People with dual citizenship are allowed to represent one country only. If you are playing outside of the country you represent, you have to inform your local representative about your participation one week prior to the event or earlier.

For example if you travel from France to play in Russia, you have to tell representative in France that you will be playing abroad so your elimination rounds can be sorted.
