    Vow, if BC members form a team including Jona Rasmussen, Thomas Layborun and other pro's, Ebay will have no chance winning this year. :)

    So it will interesting to see if Kwun will play for BC or his company. :)

    thanks for providing draws details.
    How will div A & B draws placed.. will it be random or based on how many matches one wins in round-robin play. if its random It could be possible Oracle and ebay top seeds can meet at first Div A single-elimination playoff?

    we are using a pretty standard fixed placement for the Div elimination round. the winner of each group will not face each other until later on in the elimination.

    one thing to point out is that the 4 seeds, ebay, yahoo, cisco and oracle are seeded and placed in the group according to their seed status (separately). however, their placement in the Div elimination round will be determined by their performance in the group and not by their seeding. so it is still possible for ebay to meet oracle if either team do badly in their group.

    this i think is pretty standard stuff. we don't want to do any random nor performance based placement.

    There is still a chance for a very late addition to round up to 16 teams.

    the gym will be closed to open gym as we have reserved the whole gym for the tournament.
