Optional Side Pools will run alongside the Main Tournament. (A Side Pool is a prize fund made up of additional and optional entry fees, kept separate from the main prize fund, and awarded to the player of each side pool who gets the furthest in each pool.)

Clocks will be used in all finals, except the Novices' Knockout and the Saturday Shootout. The Tournament Directors will invoke clocks in any game where slow play is delaying proceedings.
