Michael: You are 2-0 playing from the champ's podium. With the high score of the semis that gets you back at position 1 for the finals, right? Well done in your two games that aired this week.
I'm actually curious; how do they determine this? And for that matter, how do they determine which quarterfinalist winner and wildcard plays in which semifinal?
Podium position in the semifinals and the two-day, total-point affair is determined by final score in the previous round. (In the quarterfinals, it depends on the tournament being contested.*)
How they draw the QF winners and the wild cards into the semifinals remains generally a mystery to us, beyond the fact that players who met in a QF will not rematch in an SF.
* ToC QF positions are based on previous winnings; in Teen, College, and Teachers, it's alphabetical order, left to right on your television screen.
