How the MUG race works: The top player in the standings gets his or her name on the MUG trophy, and free plays to all of the MUGs in the following calendar year. The top player in Flight B (under 2000), and Flight C (u0nder 750) both receive six free plays for MUGs in the following calendar year. Nobody is allowed to win more than one prize; if a player wins in multiple flights, the lower prize(s) go to the next highest eligible player. Everyone competes in the race(s) that he or she was eligible for on January 1, even after accumulating enough masterpoints since to move up a strat. The 2012 prize winners were: Baixiang (Brian) Liu (Flight A winner, by just 0.04 points over Larry Pocock!); Eric Pan (second to Baixiang Liu in Flight B), and Ron Kuiper (Flight C winner).

Note that Sectional tournaments, the IMP League, the Ev Hodge Charity Classic and the quarterly Saturday Afternoon Mentor-Mentee Team Games, while run under a Unit Championship sanction, are NOT part of the Monthly Unit Game masterpoint race. Players in the strat A race are listed to #25 and ties, in strat B and C to #15 and ties; but are not listed beyond those ranks (even though they may have more points than listed players in a lower strat).
