:SWE is the first team to qualify for the playoffs and, as such, the Olympics.

4 in the final end against Canada is a good way to do it.  That was some impressive comeback by them to win

Is “The team formally known as the Russian Curling Federation team” acceptable?

I think this tournament shows that curling, like all other team sports at the Olympics, deserves 12 teams per event. 

Wouldn't work if they wanted to keep the full round robin.  Too many matches to squeeze onto the schedule, especially since they added the mixed doubles.  Right now, it's 12 draws each for men and women to get all the matches in.  They'd need 17 draws apiece for 12 teams.  Has to stay at 10

It could work if they did a day -3 and/or 4 draws in a day

They could make it two groups and the same play off system as in the worlds.

The :NOR - :CAN match tonight is extremely important. The loser will drop to a fifth loss. The match is especially pivotal for Canada - if Canada loses the match they no longer control their destiny, as :SUI has the head to head tie-break over Canada. The winner of the match is guaranteed to qualify if they win their final match tomorrow.

 

:ITA and :JPN are still mathematically in the race, if my quick calculation is correct they need to win all their remaining games, Switzerland to lose at least one game and the loser of Norway - Canada to lose their final game. And that just gets them to the mess that is the tie-break.

Also, :SWE and not Russia advanced to the semi-finals. As @mrv86 mentioned :USA  qualified to the playoffs and the Olympics.

 

Scenarios for qualification:

:GBR qualifies with a :SCO win over :NOR.

:NOR qualifies with a win over :SCO.

:SUI qualifies with a win over :CHN  and a :SCO win over :NOR.

The Canada - Germany match does not affect qualification.
