What I'm saying is that there were probably at least 2 pairs of judges for the category (possibly even 3 pairs). They would have split the 23 entries between the pairs and then pushed 2 or 3 from each pair of judges to the mini-BOS. The mini-BOS would have then had 2 or 3 judges (maybe not even any of the original judges) debating those 5 or 6 beers and deciding which ones would place with potentially no knowledge of how they scored at all. Sometimes you may get judges for mini-BOS with different preferences than the scoring judges. So, if you had an American IPA, but the mini-BOS judges are more familiar with or prefer English IPAs or IIPAs, then they may lean that way for choosing places.
