New tournament format: Ladder tournaments

The tournament format used in the PAPA Circuit final:

"At the start of the third round, the remaining 10 players will be placed in a ladder-style bracket based on their original seeds. The bottom 4 players will compete in a single game, with the lowest scoring player being removed from the contest and replaced by the next highest seed. When only 2 players remain, they will compete in a best two-games-out-of-three series to determine the Circuit Champion and decide who takes home the PAPA Circuit Belt!"

        this is good but matchplay doesnt line up with the IFPA on this.
        For example, from the TGP guide:
        "4 player groups, 1 player eliminated per round until final 4 players remain (assumes 1 game for final 4)"
        Matchplay doesnt give a way to end the ladder tournament after ONE game is played by the final 4.
        Can we get that added to make this line up with the IFPA?
