"This is the first and only time I've heard of points for a tournament solo round."
Yes, this is true. It was my idea to try to combine a league and tournament together. Roc and Rolling is usually the testbed for the 101 to try out new ideas, not just run another two round tournament. Foz, Chris Gee and the Schooley's are to thank for being open to trying this out. Maybe it will catch on with other tournaments, maybe not.. At least it's points right? Some are better than none.
