The 2012 Potomac Open was held August 2-4 at the Rockville Hilton in Rockville, MD. A total of 164 players competed in six sections. The tournament awarded the largest amount of money we have ever awarded for a score-based tournament, $11,510. The additional prizes for 1st place and three players going 5-0 lead to the larger payout.
