Just tagging you so that we don’t have potentially interested people missing the registration deadline. :slight_smile:


Players from previous seasons (that have not yet been tagged):

If you are interested in taking part in the pan-american open, you can still do so. No need to have taken part in Season 11. You just need to register.


What I registered

@Ahmed2008 as you are under 18, we need permission from a parent for you to participate. We emailed them but haven’t heard back yet.

Hi @Simon ,

can you verify that my registration is done?

I am not sure if my browser window crash was before the process was finished.

thanks for that.

Hi QuaraMan - yes, confirmed.

Thank you @Simon.

Thanks for the heads up!

Question, I just want to make sure I’m not missing anything: if I can’t check the box “I am available to play on 15/16 May” then I can’t register - independently of the fact that I definitely wouldn’t end up actually qualifying for playing on those days. Is that correct?

Simon my mother send to you that she agree

Hi @Ahmed2008 - yes, we received your mother’s consent, thank you. You should be able to register on the Memory League site now.

I’m registered baby! CAN-A-DA! CAN-A-DA!


Hi @a.l ,

That’s the way the form works, because the idea is that you are trying to qualify for the Slam on 15/16 May.

However, if you are pretty sure you won’t qualify but would still like to play in the qualifiers, you could just tick the box and register anyway. If you happen to qualify, we could give your spot in the finals to the next player who is available.


Hi @Simon,
Yes I’m sure, I’ll do that then,
Thank you!

I am in as well.

Best wishes,



When will the drawing of the qualifiers happen? And will the drawing be streamed? I’m already excited. :slight_smile:

From what I understand, the seeding of the Pre-Slam tournament is done in such a way that all n number of registrants who have an SSL ranking are seeded according to that ranking from 1 to n. The remaining spots are then filled randomly with the non-SSL registrants.

The draw itself, after the seeding has been done, would follow a pre-determined bracket, from what I understand, like at the Slam, so once the seeding is finished, all pairings would be clear.

Of course, the random assignment of seeding spots to the non-SSL players could be done in a drawing of lots way like at the FIFA World Cup, for example, first drawing spot n+1, then n+2 etc… until all seeding spots are filled (and thus all pairings are completed). Would be interesting to watch :).

You would play in the final round, @Philodoof, btw, since you moved up to spot no. 15 of the SSL rankings (with 3 players who are before you in the ranking not having registered). The final round, for a spot in the Slam, will take place in the last week of April :).


I have a couple of questions regarding the Pan American Open.
Forgive me if the answers are obvious … It might be because I have been away for a while.

The matches are best of 8, so we all choose 4 disciplines, this I understand.
Now we are making 4 choices instead of 3, presumably you can still only choose 1 of International names or names?

You win if you reach 4 wins and 2 ahead, so 4-2 for example, and you do not play the remaining 2 matches.
Would this therefore apply also to if you reach 4.5-2.5 or 5-3?

If the game gets to 4-4 you play a tiebreak … How is the discipline chosen for this?

Now the bracket for qualification has been published, I play seed 43, so does this mean entry is still open? If not, who is seed 43, or do I get a bye?
