PBA competitors will compete in a series of 2-game bracket elimination matches leading up to a best-of-five-games final round to determine the Kia PBA Playoffs champion. Ties will be broken by a 9th and 10th frame roll-off. If players are still tied after a 9th and 10 frame roll-off, the PBA one ball roll-off rule will be used to break the tie. Higher seeds will have bowling order and lane choice in all cases of ties.
