Gaming Tournaments

We are proud to announce that Saboten Con will have 2 paid gaming tournaments over the weekend.  We know that this area will grow over the following years, but to help it get an initial bump Saboten Con will guarantee a pot for each paid tournament of $250, no matter how many people sign up. All money collected will be given 100% back in tournament winnings, Saboten Con and AZHP will not keep any of this money. If we see that the turnout is on par or above where we expected this year we have plans to work on a gaming only badge for future years, but we need to see a strong turnout this year to make future years possible.
