WSDC 2013 – End of Round 5 Standings


Team Standings following Round 5. I am crossing my fingers that these are not incorrect as was the case last time around.
As usual, note that a number of teams have had a ‘bye’ so far, and all of Nigeria’s opponents will still need to have that forfeited debate recalculated. This makes the break particularly hard to predict this year, although it is now safe to say that Singapore, Australia and New Zealand are almost certain to break at this point.

With Singapore set to face New Zealand in Round 8, this means that it is mathematically impossible for more than 2 teams to break on 8 wins, the lowest number since 2007 when Ireland were the only team to break on 8 wins. Even then, the tournament was significantly smaller in size. Since then, 3 teams have broken on 8 wins every year except for 2010 where 5 teams managed this feat.

The current top 13 teams are highly likely candidates to break. Amongst them 10 are almost certain to break; the other 3 being more contingent. Given the upcoming pairing and draw, I think it is safe to say that at least 1 team to break on 8, 4 on 7 and 3 on 6 bar any major upsets. It is unlikely that only teams on 6 wins will break, but if any 5 win spots are free, they will be limited to less than 5 teams. Full break analysis after R6.
