The Douse Cup is an annual invitation only event run throughout the year. The format is Double Elimination with Progressive Consolation. All matches are 17 points. Players are seeded according to the 2011 year-end club standings: 2011 Standings.

Players are responsible for scheduling matches with their opponents. Please try to finish at least one round per month.

The prize pool will be distributed 50% to the winner, 25% each to second place and first consolation. In addition to the prize money, the 1st place finisher will have his or her name engraved on the Douse Cup, and will take possession of the Cup for the following year. There will also be an optional sidepool that will be paid out 70% to the sidepool participant that gets the farthest in the main, and 30% to the participant that gets the farthest in the consolation. (The same player cannot win both.)
