NOTES:

With 12 teams in the USA1 Round Robin, there will be 4 teams in the first stage (Round of 32) of USA2. They will play 90 board Knockout matches to reduce to 2.

The second stage (Round of 16) of USA2 will be a Round Robin with 6 teams (the 4 USA1 Quarterfinal losers and the 2 USA2 first stage winners). The Round Robin will qualify 4 teams for the USA2 SemiFinals.

The teams in the Round of 16 Round Robin will be numbered in alphabetic order.

EVERY PLAYER ON EACH TEAM MUST PLAY AGAINST EACH OTHER TEAM
          (USBF General Conditions of Contest Section VIII B).

Last two matches on June 4th are sequestered, no comparisons, no substitutions at team's home table. Because this means there can be no seating rights for those matches, there are no seating rights in the other half of those two matches.
