I was already thinking about this.
With 684 players, the rules state that a minimum of 171 make A. Also, players forced in do NOT increase the size. That means you have to find out where the tie-line that made it grow 4 spaces higher (since 175 were in A) is.
The cut-line was 26 players at 34 wins. 34 wins means you were tied for 134th. That means the 6 in the basement had absolutely no effect on the size of A whatsoever. It would’ve been a different story if there were only like 9 or 10 tied at 34, but that wasn’t the case.
Edit: I was a little wrong in my initial conclusion, sorry. I guess there would’ve been room for the 33.5’ers, but that’s it. Not the 33’ers.
