Top 8

Posted by eoghan on November 15th, 2008

The Top 8 Tournament is played annually to determine who will compete for the title of Irish Champion. The tournament takes the form of an eight-player league, with each competitor playing a single match against the others. The top four finishers each year automatically qualify for the following year’s Top 8 tournament with the remaining places filled by the top finishers in the Ladder Tournament.
