Some tournament notes:

The novice division will consist of five preliminary rounds (regardless of 18 or 24 teams). The top 2 from each prelim brackets will advance and play an additional 3 or 4 games. Full details will be announced when the field is finalized. This format will be limited as there will be a max of 9/10 rounds since the set only has 10 rounds.
