THE PLAYER CHANGE BUTTON IS USED FOR THIS TOURNAMENT.
The cork/diddle is game 1 in Both the Winner's and Loser's Leagues. Use to decide Home Team before any match. Team on top on the bracket shoots first in the diddle (Home). The diddle game is one round (3 darts) for 1 player per team of Split Bull Count-Up. Each team elects a player; the selected player will throw all three darts. In the case of a tie, another diddle game will be played using the remaining partners and keeping the same team as the Home team. THE DIDDLE GAME DOES NOT COUNT AS WIN FOR MATCH PLAY, IT ONLY DECIDES WHO STARTS MATCH.
Winner’s Side Event - Race to 3 wins. Exit the league should a team reach 3 wins without the need for the tiebreaker. The winner of the winner’s side will play the winner of the loser’s side for the Championship. In the event the winner’s side wins first match, congratulations. If the loser’s side beats the winner’s side in the first match, there will be a final championship match played; you will play that match in the Loser's side which is race to 2. Winner of that match will be declared the winner.
Loser’s Side Event - Race to 2 wins. Exit the League should a team reach 2 wins without the need for the tiebreaker. The winner of the loser’s side will play the winner of the winner’s side for the Championship in the Winner's side, race to 3. If the loser's side wins that match, you will then play in the loser's side, race to 2.
Tiebreaker Event – is used if 2-2 on Winner’s Side or 1-1 on Loser’s Side. Diddle is one round of Count-up. Re-diddle before starting this game. Diddle is one round of Count-up. Once again, the team on top on the bracket will be home team for the diddle. Winner of the diddle will start Tiebreaker, which is 501 OI/OO Solid Bull Freeze.
