Format[edit]

The following results were data reverse engineered from the information in the TLPD. The tournament started with eight best-of-one matches.

Eight losers formed their own single-elimination sub-tournament for two spots in the final Ro8. They played their second round as best-of-one and third round as best-of-three.

Eight winners formed their own sub-tournament for the remaining six spots in the final Ro8. The winners played best-of-one matches against each other and these second round winners were seeded directly into the Ro8. The losers in this second round were matched against each other and winners of these best-of-one matches were seeded in the Ro8.

The four players that would finish this pre-Ro8 stage without a loss formed half of the draw. The remaining four players formed another half, with two players that lost in the first round matched against each other.
