Aside from the official games on the roster, Evo is also known for hosting a number of side tournaments. One of the more famous ones is the annual Capcom vs. SNK 2 side tournament hosted by legendary player Ryo “D44BAS” Yoshida.
This year, BAS returns to host another Capcom vs. SNK 2 side tournament; to up the stakes, BAS has also added a special bounty on himself. That’s right: anyone who’s able to eliminate the man acknowledged by many to be the best CvS2 player in the world will receive a $500 bonus, regardless of their placing in the tournament.
For those interested in joining, registration for the tournament is now open at smash.gg. The tournament itself will take place on Saturday, July 15 at Evo 2017’s Bring Your Own Console area. Entry fee is only $5, and registration opens at 1:30 PM with the tournament starting at 3:00 PM. Format for the tournament is double-elimination, played in best of two out of three matches.
