100 duos will descend on Willis Tower in Chicago tonight as the Red Bull Rise Till Dawn event kicks off. The players will be competing in a Halo 3 tournament that kicks off as the sun sets and ends as the sun comes up as the title alludes to.
The overnight event will open its doors at 6pm CT and have a total of $10,000 up for grabs. First place will take home 50% of the total prize pool while second and third place teams will earn $3,500 and $1,500 respectively.
The duos will be split into four groups in the swiss format with the top two teams making it to the single elimination playoffs.
Once the top 8 has been set, those not participating can join in an open event which will have prizes up for grabs.
It is important to note that there will be no spectators. Anyone who is not participating in the event can watch from home and will not be able to enter the venue.
