On February 14-15, the Big Magic Open returns to Yokohama, Japan! This is the third Big Magic Open, a partnership between Japanese tournament organizer Big Magic and StarCityGames.com, after two successful events in 2014.
The two main tournaments of the Big Magic Open, Standard on Saturday, February 14, and Legacy on Sunday, February 15, each offer a prize pool of one million (1,000,000) Japanese yen and qualify the Top Eight players to one of the next four StarCityGames.com Invitationals. The entry fee is five thousand (5,000) yen, but players with Silver or higher Pro Player Club status and members of the Pro Tour Hall of Fame are eligible to participate in these events for free.
Both days of the Big Magic Open also feature a major side event. On Saturday, a Legacy-format Invitational Challenge will qualify four players for one of the next four StarCityGames.com Invitationals, with travel assistance to the United States also going to the event winner. On Sunday, a Standard-format Pro Tour Qualifier will award the winner entry and airfare for Pro Tour Dragons of Tarkir in Brussels, Belgium.
