    Very odd system. If 8 must be reduced to 3 in three days so someone can enter in the semis then I would do this:

    Day 1 as above, but all losers drop out.
    Day 2 winner 1 vs winner 2, winner 3 vs winner 4, winners progress to semi-final and get the day off, losers to day 3
    Day 3 losers of day 2 play, winner goes to semi-final, loser drops out.

    Yes I think this would have been better. Fewer games, but better.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.
