The format of the tournament shall be as follows:
- One round of elimination, randomly seeding the barons against each other to cut the field in half.
- The three remaining shall fight in round robin fashion with the baron to emerge 2-0 claiming the title.
- Should there be no winner after the first round robin, then a second shall be fought with all duels happening at the same time. ((and with a 5 minute move submission window instituted)). Continuing on until there is a winner.
Should only four of the barons appear, then the round robin phase shall be scrapped and the tournament fought as a simple two round, single elimination event.
