In a Tennis Open tournament $71$ persons have signed up for elimination rounds. All players are to be paired up for the first round, but because $71$ is an odd number one player gets a bye, which promotes him to the second round, without actually playing in the first round. The pairing continues on the next round, with a bye to any player left over. If the schedule is planned so that a minimum number of matches are required to determine the champion, the number of matches which must be played is 

  1. $71$ 
  2. $70$ 
  3. $69$ 
  4. $36$
