What is a Double Elimination Bracket?
So how does a double elimination bracket work with four teams? Double elimination brackets are exactly as they’re named — a team is only truly eliminated when they lose twice. These type of brackets are more inherently more-complicated than single elimination brackets because teams that lose move into a separate bracket while the one team that advances through the top bracket will await the one team from the loser bracket to come out.
With each participating team allowed two losses before they’re fully out of the tournament, 4-team bracket has a few rounds of games that ends with a finale featuring an undefeated team from the “winners” bracket and one team from the “losers” bracket. Here’s some examples of other single elimination brackets to better understand the concept of a double elimination bracket:
- 4 team single elimination bracket
- 6 team single elimination bracket
- 6 team double elimination bracket
- 7-team single elimination bracket
- 8-team single elimination bracket
- 10-team bracket
- 16 team bracket double elimination
