The league has used the following format the past few years and it may be modified slightly due to the addition of two more teams
The top seed gets a "bye" to the first game of the second round. Games 9 and 12 set up the first elimination and give the league champion a way back in the tournament if they lose their first game. The system is weighted to give the top seed a potential of winning the championship in 4 games while most of the seeds would have to win 6 games to win the championship.
