The entry fee has been raised $5 to $80. Non-members will pay $95. This excludes special tournaments such as the Tournament of Champions, Point Leader Invitational and Masters. The entry fee has been raised $25 to $100 in the Tournament of Champions. This will enable NEBA to keep the prizefunds similar to the last seven years while Cambridge Credit Counseling and TNTPokerRoom.net were adding $500-$1500 to each tournament. All those who qualify for match play will win a minimum of double the entry fee ($160) in non-special tournaments.
