Sixteen competitors remain, but not for long! All of these competitors are finishing in the money and will walk away with at least $200 for their efforts, plus 10 MaxPoints and an exclusive playmat. But finish in the Top 8, and you'll score a cool half-grand – 500 bucks plus double the MaxPoints! The Top 4 get $800, and second place doubles that, nabbing a $1600 prize purse.

Then we double it again. At the end of the day, the winner of the YGO Series Championship will win the glory of 2014 YGO Series Champion title, and $3200. Stick with us, because it all goes down over the next four rounds here in Indianapolis!
