*Note, copied and pasted from facebook event, I does not refer to me, linkorz.
This tournament will be hosting a SCV side tournament. We have several people coming out, such as @AVNjonnitti and the avylon peeps will be there to play/record matches as well.*

What's up everyone, my name is Kevin aka BIFU | Slob Murph and I have been running events in the FGC for the past eight years. I have also helped out with various tournaments, most notably for the old school "Jersey Shoreyuken" series when Street Fighter 4 first made its debut. On February 20th, 2016, Bifuteki & Nerd Palace will be hosting a Street Fighter V release party/tournament.

How much does it cost?

To enter Jersey Shoryuken: Rise Up, you pay an entry fee, there is no venue fee for tournaments at Nerd Palace! All money collected from entry fees go 100% right back to the winners.

Venue Fee - FREE
Entry Fee -$10 for SFV

How much can you win?

1st Place - 70%
2nd Place - 20%
3rd Place - 10%

Simply put, if there are 40 competitors that pay $10 to play SFV, the prize pool would be (40 x $10) = $400. If you come in 1st place, you will receive 70% of the prize pool, or $280.
