You read that correctly, there is not one but two PTIs on offer at Battle Hardened, along with a heap of other great prizes!

PTIs can be used to enter any Professional level tournament, including Pro Tours and the World Championship, and do not expire, compared to invitations from ProQuest events that are only valid for the associated Pro Tour event they feed.
