TOURNAMENT FORMAT: 
- Single elimination bracket.

- Player One will attempt to make a basket. The shot must be "called" or explained to Player Two and the judge prior to completing the shot.

- ​If Player One is successful with the shot, Player Two must make the same shot in the exact same way. If Player Two fails to duplicate the shot, they earn a letter starting with "H." If Player Two successfully completes the shot, control returns to Player One to attempt another shot.

- If Player One is not successful with the shot, control is handed over to Player Two who then attempts to make a shot of their choice. The shot must be "called" or explained to Player One and the judges prior to completing the shot.​

- Once control is handed over to Player Two, if he or she is successful with the shot, Player One must make the same shot in the exact same way. If Player One fails to duplicate the shot, they earn a letter stating with "H." If Player One successfully completes the shot, control returns to Player Two to attempt another shot.

- This pattern continues until a player has earned all five letter (H-O-R-S-E) or the time limit of fifteen minutes has been reached. The player that has spelled H-O-R-S-E or has the most letters after fiteen minutes is eliminated and the winner advances to the next round in the bracket.
