One Round to go, Four Players have the Ability to Win it all

With one round to go four players are tied for first with 3.5/6, Li, William, Brown, and Krishnan. So, if they win their last game and any playoff, they will be the champion. The top four players are playing the bottom four players. So, the number of people in first after seven rounds could be 1, 2, 3, 4, or 8. It does seem likely that there will be a playoff. It will be covered live just like the games.
