To clarify though, C would advance no matter what the outcome of the game. If he lost then A,B,C,D would advance, if he won, then A,B,C would advance. In the former system, the top 2 scores would advance.

My bad, you're right, there would be a clear winner if he won, and the tournament would be over.

Round 4 is now like watching paint dry.

Certain players will be running out of vacation early next week if they continue to stall, and at that point things will hopefully pick up.

It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

Do you have any contact with Watsu? He has only 1 vacation day left. Is there any chance he will play?

He hasn't logged on or responded to me since 10/8. Looks like this tournament may be headed to an unfortunate conclusion. Shame...

way back at the beginning of this, watsu said he probably would not finish. Looks like his prediction is coming true
