There should be a day between quarters and semis so that winners of the quarter get a rest. Just put the placement game (places 5 and 6) and two relegation games there to be played on that day and that's it.
That all doesn't matter anymore anyway, as this is the final year of the 1/2 final bye. Next year everybody plays a 1/4 game.
