Since they didn't win yesterday and it's their debut, that is correct :d

Wait, this is one of those phony tournaments were there's a difference between the groups in terms of what one needs to do in terms of qualifying and such?

Australia isn’t half bad either. They almost beat one of the more historic and more skilled teams in their pool. It’s a good win for the Dutch boys. 

 

I’d say the Dutch might have a small to decent chance at winning the President’s Cup (12th-18th Place Rankings)

yes, groups A & B are the top tier league, groups C & D the second-tier...just like the women's (Ice) Hockey worlds...:evil:

Yes. Pool A and Pool B are the top tier teams. Pool C and Pool D is everyone else. All 8 top tier teams advance to at least the round of 12. The top 4 (2 from each pool) Pool C and D teams advance to the round of 12. The losers go to the President’s Cup.

 

At the round of 12 we begin the double elimination part of the tournament. Once there are 4 teams to remaining we go to single elimination for Semifinals. Every team will play a final placement match.

Well I think though it’s weighted in favor of the favorites, It does give us the most deserving winner. Any tournament winner has to survive pool play, survive double elimination, and win their semifinal and final matches.
