What is the Yu-Gi-Oh! Open Tournament?

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Open Tournament (YOT) is a new series of 2-day tournaments to be held in the Asia region, where duelists from the Asia region and around the globe can compete for fame, glory and great prizes. These tournaments are a great chance for all players to meet up to duel, trade and also meet up with like-minded friends.

Aside from the main tournament, there are other public events, such as the Asia Premier, and chances to win limited edition accessories. It is a weekend where there is something for all Yu-Gi-Oh! Fans!

Format for Yu-Gi-Oh! Open Tournament – Hong Kong
The YOT – Hong Kong (YOTHK) main event will be an Advanced Constructed format event, using the
current Forbidden & Limited Cards List, where only OCG Japanese or Asia-English cards can be used in the  tournament.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Open Tournament will consist of a number of Swiss-style rounds, followed by a top cut
playoffs, as follows:

– Up to 256 Duelists: 7 rounds of Swiss on Saturday, followed by Top 64 Single-Elimination on Sunday
– Above 256 Duelists: 8 rounds of Swiss on Saturday, followed by Top 64 Single-Elimination on Sunday

Preparing for the event:
