I guess the better question would be, can this tournament even be categorized into a bracket form, or does it operate off of a pool structure?
Pool structure kinda. I'll try to tl;dr the rules and say that the top 32 out of 64 teams by w/l record and then by highest points get through to the finals which is single elimination and goes 1v2, 3v4, 5v6, etc.
So their is no pre-ranking ala NCAA or anything. A good pool would be betting on who will make it to the top 16 or final 2.
