          I actually spelled Normay wrong as well, while trying to make fun of your spelling mistake. He who lives by the sword

                  round robin in the group stages and then knock out for the group winner and second place
                  not sure of the frames per match though
                  would not be surprised if it was best of 7s like PTCs

                      It's the same rules as in 2011. So each player plays a frame against both players from the other team, plus one doubles frame. Five frames in total, all played, even if one team already gets to three.
