That is why the Prizes are still awaiting Final confirmation. However most of those details are locked in. Keep checking and the final update will come soon.

Apparently the glasses they are providing are fairly expensive ie. I was told $150 range.

how about $150 as 2nd prize

Post has been updated and the glasses are now third prize.

Hey Guys!

For those who don’t know. Drekken is my brother in arms for all the POWNZ tournaments. He provides the setups and I run the show day of. This man works hard to bring prizes like this to you guys.

This guy deserves a huge round of applause at this tournament.
