Selection Process at Urbana
There are four quarters of six open slams each. Each open slam has 
eight slammers. The winner qualifies for the semifinals. Each 
semifinal has six poets (the six winners of the open slams); if only 
five of the winners are available for a semifinal, a "ranking 
qualifier" is brought up on points (a poet gets 27 points for 
winning, 14 points for second place, three for third, and 1 for 
fourth). The four semifinal winners win their way into the second 
half of the first round of the finals (spots 5 through 8). To 
determine spots 1 through 4 n the first round of the finals, we hold 
the MegaQuasiSemifinal one week before finals. The top eight point 
earners of the season battle it out to see who the top four are. 
Those four go on to the finals. Then we have a Last Chance Slam in 
which anyone can throw their name in the hat to see if they can be 
the last person in the finals.
