What is a Single-Elimination Tournament Bracket?

A single-elimination tournament bracket matches up the number of teams in several rounds of games until there’s only one team standing. A bracket contains a minimum of four games,, but usually the tournament field contains many more teams. Tournament rounds are determined by the amount of teams – the more teams there are, the more rounds there are. To learn more about single elimination brackets, go here.

What is a Double Elimination Bracket?

A double elimination is a format of elimination competition in which that team or individual is eliminated from the tournament bracket after losing two games and is disqualified from becoming the tourney’s champion.

The most popular way of running a double-elimination tournament is to first place all competitors into the bracket with those losing their first game or match moving into a secondary bracket known commonly as the losers bracket. After that first round, the primary bracket would be known as the winners bracket for exactly that reason. These two brackets play out until the one undefeated team makes it to the finale from the winners bracket meets up with the champion of the losers bracket.

These two teams will play in the championship to determine the tournament’s champion. For more details on double-elimination brackets, go here.
