It's time for another year of FPG playoffs.  The cutoff this year is 8 games, this covers most of the regular players with the exception of a couple people who fell off after playing early in the season. The main difference this year is that we're doing a 3 week playoff format, mostly due to spoilers being an issue towards the end of the season. I also don't want to rely on fill in the blank past shows if we can help it. Otherwise things are mostly the same as they have been in the past, here's a breakdown of the playoffs:

Key cash will not be awarded, nor will the normal scale of FPG points and cash. Everything else is still in play, however - the 1/2/3/4 point bonuses, NCFAC picks (if you have any left) and the six-for-six cash award can still be earned. There's some NCFAC picks out there, don't be afraid to use them, they don't rollover into next season.

Here's how the schedule will work:

Quarterfinals: May 26, 2023 (#0255L)

> The top eight MP/CP scorers advance to the semifinals.
> You must score at least 1 MP to advance, it is possible that less than 8 players do so.
> Eliminated players receive 30 points and $75,000 on the leaderboard.

Semifinals: June 2, 2023 (#0265L)

> The top four MP/CP scorers advance to the finals.
> You must still score at least 1 MP to advance.
> Eliminated players receive the following...

     8th place: 70 points and $200,000
     7th place: 80 points and $300,000
     6th place: 90 points and $400,000
     5th place: 100 points and $500,000

The Finals: June 9, 2023 (#0275L)

> Finalist bonuses are as follows...

     4th place: 125 points and $750,000
     3rd place: 150 points and $1,000,000
     Runner-Up: 200 points and $1,500,000
     Grand Champion: 300 points and $3,000,000

Even if you just show up and play, I'll give you some money and points, so it's worth at least giving it a try. I'll have a list of eligible players down below who qualify for these games.

The end of the Studio 33 era is near us, and it'll be nice to just sit back and watch without fear of trying to host or play these games. We should be spoiler free for these next three games, will let you know if we have any spoilers that directly affect our games. We've got some past episodes if we need them, not even going to bother with the last tape day shows because we know a lot of games for them. Here's to a fun end of season, and may the best player win.
