This particular Challenger tournament will be Skellige-themed and will see eight top players compete for their share of the $100,000 prize pool, some Crown Points, and a spot in the Gwent World Masters tournament which rounds out the end of the Gwent esports season.
This weekend's tournament will begin with the quarterfinals on Saturday and continue with the semifinals and finals on Sunday. All matches will be livestreamed on the official CD Projekt Red Twitch channel and masters.playgwent.com.
