    what exactly does 'group size' mean? For instance, in the Alpha
    tournament 'group size' = 5, but there are 6 players in a group. Or is
    that a minimum?

    This is how it works

    A preferred group size is chosen.

    * If it is higher than the minimum entrants – we get a all vs. all in one
    big round (like ‘quick fire’ or ‘alpha grand’ tournaments)

    * If it is 2 –we get a duel situation.

    *If it is any other number, we just divide the number of players into
    the preferred group size. Sometimes certain groups will be bigger
    than others. If we started the tournament on the right number of
    entrants (say 30, with a preferred group size of 5 – we would get equal
    groupings of 6 people) So we can manage it to make sure this
    doesn’t happen too often.

    I see. Thanks for the explanation, Russ.
