    This tournament is not part of the Canadian Master's. In Quebec, the three casinos run their own circuit simply called "Blackjack Masters tour".

    Format goes like this:

    126 players maximum.

    First round (morning): 18 table of 7 players. 21 hands. Winner of each table is qualified for the semi-final.
    Second round (afternoon): 18 table of 6 players. 21 hands. Winner of each table is qualified for the semi-final.

    In addition to the 36 qualified semi-finalists, the top 6 players with cumulative score of both rounds go to the semi-final.

    Semi-Final: 6 table of 7 players. 21 hands. Winner of each table goes to the final.

    A 7th lucky finalist is determined by a draw from all players registered.

    FINAL: If we do have 126 players, prizes are 50000 - 5000 - 3000 - 2000 - 1500 - 1000 - 500. This represents 100% of fees: 126 X $500 = $63000.

    Thank you for straightening that out for me zweeky.
    I saw Canadian Masters, and thought he was talking about the main event.

    Yes, that's what bring confusion, it's called "Canadian Masters" but it's Ontario only. It would be more clear if both circuits would be called "Ontario Masters" and "Quebec Masters".

    Thanks for the replies

    very informative - I was not really aware of the difference between Masters of Bj and Canadian Masters of BJ - also saw something which made me think it was a hybrid format -

    I am looking forward to the tourney

    It was hybrid last year until the final tournament in March. Now it's full elimination.

    never played accumulation - but the accumulation set up sounded better for getting through to the semi than single advance - but play single advance every month in Yuma -

    I am much looking forward to the trip - especially since my dear, sweet, obviously demented, sister, brother-in-law, and mother are 'sponsoring' me into the tourney as a birthday present -

    hope to meet some of the Canadian/East Coast tbjers there
