  1. Double-elimination tournament

    A double-elimination tournament is a type of elimination tournament competition in which a participant ceases to be eligible to win the tournament's championship upon having lost two games or matches. It stands in contrast to a single-elimination tournament, in which only one defeat results in elimination. One method of arranging a double-elimination tournament is to break the competitors into two sets of brackets, the Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket after the first round. The first round winners proceeding into the W Bracket and the losers proceeding into the L Bracket. The W Bracket is conducted in the same manner as a single-elimination tournament, except of course that the losers of each round "drop down" into the L Bracket. Another method of double elimination tournament management is the Draw and Process. As with single-elimination tournaments, most often the number of competitors is equal to a power of 2 so that each round there are an even number of competitors and never any byes. The maximum number of games in a double elimination tournament is one less than twice the number of teams participating. The minimum number is two less than twice the number of teams.
