Season 5 Playoff Structure

Shuhei Nakamura is the #1 seed based on his 7-2 record in the regular season, and he advances to the finals.

We have a 3-way tie for 2nd – 4th between Rich Shay, Eric Froehlich, and Paul Rietzl. Instead of trying to figure out who is the #2 seed what we’re going to do is have the 3 of them play a full round robin of best 3 out of 5 match series. (So the first two playoff weeks will have 3 total best 3 of 5 match-ups, instead of two.) Whichever one of them defeats the other two will join Shuhei in the finals. If they each go 1-1 then best match win % will be our first tiebreaker, followed by best game win %, followed by another match of Magic.
