A Third Option for Regional KOs - Stratified Swiss KOs
One problem with the Soloway KOS format is that at least district is planning to have 5-team brackets--not because the top bracket might only have 5 teams, but to have all but the bottom bracket have 5 teams. It's a solution to the problem of having too few teams ...
