Chronology

GENESIS 3 is the third installment in the GENESIS series. It took place in San Jose, California on January 15-17, 2016.[1] This tournament was the followup to an earlier attempt to organize a third installment of the GENESIS series in 2013. Those plans were cancelled because of the overcrowding of events in the summer of 2014 as well as sidefx's inability to commit to planning and hosting the event.[2]

The Melee Games Season 4 finals took place at this event.[3]

Prize Pool[edit]

The prize pools include the following pot bonuses from the compendium: $5,000 for Melee Singles, $5,000 for the Smash Draft and $500 for a 5th place tie-breaker.[4]

* PPMD decided not to play the 5th place tie-breaker[5].
