  • Once again, the best chance they've got is to take 1st place this week (317pts).       
  • If they place 2nd (277pts) and Agilitas places 3rd (250pts) or lower, IIIII is in.  
  • If they place 2nd (277pts) and Agilitas places 1st (310pts) AND  Coast Blue is eliminated before the Round of 8 (276pts), IIIII is in.  
  • If they place 3rd (257pts)and Agilitas places 4th (235pts) or lower, IIIII is in.  
  • If they finish 4th (242pts) and Agilitas is eliminated in the Round of 8 (220pts) or sooner, this will force a tie between SK gamin and IIIII at 242 points each.
