    There are 24 players. Each player will play in two out of three of the tournaments. Each tournament will have 16 players, and have a two-stage format.

     

    In the first stage, the players are divided into four pools of four, and the players in each pool play a double round-robin mini-tournament. The four winners of the pools progress to the second stage.

     

    In the second stage, the four pool winners play a knock-out tournament, consisting of semi-finals and a final. Both the semi-finals and final will consist of 2 regular time limit games, plus tiebreaks if required.

     

    Players receive Grand Prix points according to their finishing position in each tournament. The two players with the most Grand Prix points across the two tournaments they play qualify for the Candidates Tournament 2022.
