Welcome to the Pistol Dueling Tournament!

The Pistol Duel Tournament is conducted through three levels of engagement or rounds. The first round is a preliminary round with a “King of the Hill” format. The second round is single eliminations, and the last round is the finals.

How It Works:

  • “King of the Hill” – Two lines will form, one for each side, duelists can participate as many times as they want until the time duration is over, or until they no longer want to participate. The objective in the first round is to maximize points. As a part of this if a duelist hits their opponent, but doesn’t get hit then they get to stay in as the king earning more points.
  • Eliminations – 8 duelists will participate in single eliminations and eliminations are seeding via the traditional approach of seeding rounds. E.g. 1st vs 8th, 2nd vs 7th, etc.
  • Finals – 4 duelists will participate having three matches each. In the finals duelists will stand back to back, and walk to the designated line upon which they will go through the process described below.

Medals: The tournament awards gold, silver, and bronze medals to the top three participants.
