Is there a field update for this tournament now that it's under a week away?

Congratulations to Berkeley A for winning Stanford's mirror of WAO II! There was a circle of death among Berkeley A, The Lads (Liu/Nguyen/Sutherlin/Gossiaux), and The World According to GARP (Bentley/Gurram/Wang/Aggarwal). The Lads defeated GARP in a play-in game for the right to play Berkeley A (seeded first by PPG) in the final, which Berkeley A then won 430-200.

Thanks to all teams who came out to play the tournament, including the players who traveled quite a distance to come to this mirror. Also, many thanks to all the staffers who helped out (Aakash Patel, James Bradbury, Jonchee Kao, Zachary Yan), and to the editors of the set.

We ran Eyes That Do No See after the conclusion, shoot-out style. After 10 rounds and tiebreakers (110 tossups total), here were the scores:

Stephen Liu 25/19/28 - 425
Aseem Keyal 12/19/8 - 330
Nathan Weiser 7/7/5 - 150
Rahul Keyal 5/6/5 - 65
Eric Chen 0/3/0 - 30
Ankit Aggarwal 0/2/5 - -5
Pranav Sivakumar 0/0/1 - -5
Benji Nguyen - 0/1/4 - -10
Alex Schedel - 0/0/2 - -10

These may or may not be accurate - I quickly added up all the tallies from the scoresheet I made impromptu in Excel, so I may have missed a cell here or there. Let me know if you see any errors (and care for me to fix them)
