    it should be 69.

    then in the second round we have 69/3= 23 players + 1 extra from a drawn group,
    in the third round we have 24/3=8 + 1 extra from a drawn group,
    in the fourth round we have 3 groups of 3,
    in the fifth round the best face off.
    ((3*3-1)*3-1)*3=69

    it should be 69.

    It's all pretty immaterial since there's bound to be some tied groups with more than one player going through to the next round

    i think a good point is made to at least have a number divisible by 3

    48 is divisable by 3! At least it was the last time I looked.

    You really know you're dealing with a pedant when he fixes the pluralisation of non-words. 😀

    Keep it up, Irax, you make Irases everywhere proud!

    The rules of grammar must apply to made up words, surely!

    Otherwise I'll eat my dringanger.
