Total prize fund £185,000.


In the event of a tie for first place, there shall be a speed play-off.


If there are two or four players tied for first place, there will be a speed knock-out play-off for the first prize of £20,000. If three players tie for first place, the player with the highest performance rating will be seeded directly into the Final of the Play-Off; the other two players will contest the Semi-Final.


If more than four players tie for first place, the four players with the highest performance ratings shall qualify for the play-off to decide the first prize.


Women's Awards: If there is a tie for the top women’s prize, the tie is resolved in favour of the woman with the highest performance rating, who will receive the prize of £15,000. All other prizes will not be subject to a tie-break and prize money other than the first prize will be divided equally amongst the players.
