Semifinals and Final

The semifinals and finals are in a best-of-3 games format, with each game awarding a winner based on who achieves 5 points first. The Hamilton event uses the "Wimbledon" rule, requiring any 3rd game tied at 4-4 to only be decided after an even number of rounds have been played. This provides both players with an equal number of hammer (aka last shot) rounds. Semifinal matchups in Group A pair the 1st and 4th seeds, and 2nd and 3rd seeds from the previous round. Groups B-E play a final.
