Qualification for the State Closed Championship:
Only residents of Nebraska may qualify.

Winner of the CSG
Winner of the GPO
The rest of the spots will be taken from the POY standings using plus scoring. 2 spots if the returning champion defends he title, 3 if he does not defend his title.
Note, there may have to be a tie-break playoff if there are multiple winners at the MWO, CSG, or GPO or if an individual wins 2 or all 3 tournaments (since the people tied for 2nd would have to play for the qualifying spot).
Subtract losses from wins and floor at 0. Draws do not count. See how the scoring system works below.
