    I know only the top finishers in tournaments advance. But how many of the top? I'm in BASECAMP PLAYOFF (if the tournament names make a difference).

    The next round would consist of four players (minimum for the base camp tournament). More players would progress if and only if they were equal first in their group.

    Mute since i resigned from my tournaments games, but I could have proceeded to the second round of knockout III (where i was playing ronster) if I had of won our second match. Ronster won one game and i was one move from winning the second before i resigned. So in the knockout tournaments 64 players (minimum) proceed to the second round plus any players who finished their first round games on equla points.

    i'm in the same group of Alan T and you can look the situation :
    if i don't win the match with torokc ( very hard ), i become second.
    if i win, both i and etecka finish at 49.
    i get the final group only in the first case?
    why none know the rules? are there rules??

    Let me clarify what i said earlier, i noiw have had a very good look at your group in the base camp playoff.

    Okay, at the time i am writing this you are on 43 points with 14 wins, a draw, one loss and two games to finish. Assuming you win both of those games you will end up on 49 points.

    Etecka has also had one draw and one loss, though has six games remaining to play, now if Etecka wins all six remaining games she/he will also be on 49 points.

    Question: who goes through to the next round ?

    Answer: Both of you.

    Therefore, if you win both games you will be guranteed to get through to the next round. If you lose one game and win the other, you have to rely in one of etecka's opponents wining a game, so you can both go through on equal points.
