  1. There will be 80-1 = 79 Matches - this is because as soon as one player lost he is out of the tournament so we need 79 loosing players

  2. One match eliminates one player, so to get the top rank, 79 to be eliminated and hence 79 matches.

  3. If we devide the 80 players into 2 groups;64 and 16
    so we can end with 74 matches.

  4. So what can this all mean?
