It was a packed weekend for the WBC, quite a bit happened, and if you watched there were some real exciting moments. First off, I want to clear up a slight inaccuracy I stated in an earlier post. In each pool, not every team will play 3 games. That’s because, as had I said correctly, each pool is a double elimination tournament. So, for example, if a team loses their first game, they have a chance to win 3 more games, meaning they’d play 4 games. Also, in case you were thinking it was, it’s not a round robin tournament. If a team wins their first 2 games, there is a chance there will be a rematch in the final game. This may be the case for the US, who beat Venezuela and Canada, and likely won’t play Italy in the finals (the winner of Italy-Canada, will face Venezuela. The winner of that game will face the US in the finals) Finally, it’s not a TRUE double elimination tournament. That is because the finals are just a straight matchup. Going back to the US bracket, the US is currently 2-0 and waiting for the finals. But if they lose the championship game (for their bracket) they don’t have a second chance to win it. Of course, they’ll still advance to the next round, but it would be as the runner up. It’s not nearly as complicated as it sounds, but here is a convenient map that may help you out.
