Although USATT official listing of prize money is $1260, we have additional $240 dollar reserved for the Gold Dollar upset pool for you to take it!  This tournament is unique because money can be won by all level of players; not just the top players. The only criteria to win gold dollars is to upset a player whose USATT rating is higher than yours. The rules for winning the upset Gold Dollar are:

  1. Gold Dollars will be paid to winners of all upsets, regardless of player’s rating.
  2. Winners of each and every upset will receive gold dollars using the following payout schedule:
    1. Rating difference: 100 or less, Gold Dollar reward: $5.00
    2. Rating difference: 101 to 150, Gold Dollar reward: $10.00
    3. Rating difference: 150 or larger, Gold Dollar reward: $15.00
  3. The gold dollars will be paid immediately upon confirmation of match sheets showing upsets on a first come first get paid basis until the funds run out. KTTC reserves $240 Gold Dollars for this payout.  So sharpen your game and hit the court running fast!
  4. In addition, Grand Upset Winner (the player accumulated the most Gold Dollars by the end of the tournament play) will receive an added bonus prize of $20 Gold Dollars.
  5. Rating used to determine the upsets will be the USATT ratings of record as of 09:00 a.m. Friday August 1st, 2014.  Only USATT rated players prior to the date of the tournament are eligible to win gold dollars.
