EASTERN NATIONALS 50AAA NOT GETTING 5GAME GUARANTEE
HEY SSUSA staff, please correct the brackets for 50 aaa eastern nationals, we travel and pay $550 bucks for a 5 game guarantee , not a 4 game guarantee. PLEASE REVISE. THANKS

I've been looking at the brackets too. And you are right. 4 games for $550 that cant be right.Sure hope SSUSA Staff will catch this and correct it. We've been looking forward to playing in the nationals all summer. That's a long way to travel and an expensive entree fee to possibly only play 4 games.

Hey wagon, no need to get all uptight. If i am wrong , i will apologize. Can you tell me where the loser of game 6 and game 8 in the losers bracket of the 50 aaa will play. 2 games in the round robin or pool play, then those 2 teams lose 2 straight on sat. Isn't that a total of 4 games for 2 teams wagon. thanks

Say seed #1 loses game #4. Loser game #3 plays loser game #4 in game #7. Loser game #7 plays winner of game #6 IF necessary to get their 5GG.

Say seed #2 (or seed #7) loses game #3. They play in game #7 and if they win they go on. If they lose then they play winner of game #6 IF necessary to get their 5GG.

Dave does make mistakes, but not this time.

And the two teams in game #8 are both playing their 3rd bracket game.

I agree very difficult to follow.

Ricky33 - You are incorrect, but no public apology is necessary ... And it's actually pretty simple, as three-game-guarantee brackets go ...

GAME 6 Played between losers of Games #1 and #2 ... Loser Game #6 (0-2 record) drops into Game #8 for their third game in the bracket.

GAME 8 Loser of Game #6 (0-2) plays the loser of Game #5 (1-1) ... BOTH teams in that game are playing their third game in the bracket, with the winner advancing and the loser being eliminated.

GAME 7 Played between the loser of Game #3 (0-1) and the loser of Game #4 (1-1 OR 0-1 if the #1 Seed loses Game #4) ... If the loser of Game #7 comes out of that game with an 0-2 record, they will play in Game #10 in order to meet the three-game-guarantee ... If the loser of Game #7 comes out of that game 1-2 (being either the #4 or #5 seed), they are eliminated and Game #10 is not required or played and the winner of Game #6 advances to Game #12.

I'm reasonably confident that each team is guaranteed five games in the tournament: Two seeding games followed by a Three-game-guarantee bracket ... If I missed something, let's talk about it in Raleigh ... I'll be there as the Field Director in Wheel #1 where you are scheduled to be playing (at least five games) ...

I am very sorry guys. You all are correct as i looked at the simple bracket again this morning. I was looking right at it last night and could not figure it out. Thanks shane and dave for guiding me thru it. Never liked those 3 game guarantees anyway. And you were right too wagon. I wasnt mad , I just couldnt figure it out. Thanks again guys and good luck to all in raleigh.

I too apologize for my ignorance on the brackets but a novice looking at this type bracket would have a hard time figuring it out. I may not know how to read a bracket but I do know humility when I'm wrong. Thanks to SSUSA for the fine job you do!
