Players are responsible for bringing their own method of tracking life totals, card sleeves, and appropriate counters or tokens.
In the event that a player who wins an invitation to a Pro Tour stop at a Grand Prix has already qualified for an invitation, the invitation does not pass down under any circumstances. Previous qualification may be through a Qualifier tournament, through performance at a professional tournament, or by being an invited DCI player (valid upon the date of the official rank announcement for the appropriate professional tournament).
Top 8 Players receive Pro Points based on rank. All other players receive Pro Points based on their match point total at the end of the event.
