Can you explain the format? What does 5(2) ->2+ mean?

<Player per Group> (<Concurrent Games per Opponent>) -> <Players Advancing per Group> [+=No Tie Breaks]

Example 1: 5(2)->2+ means 5 players per group, playing both games per opponent at the same time, 2 players advance from each group, and no tie breaks. 

 

Example 2: 8(1)->1 means 8 players per group, playing one game per opponent at a time, 1 player advances from each group, and use tie breaks. 

Does this answer your question?
