2-16 Double Elimination: AKA two loss and out Advantages: –One of the fairest types of tournaments –Gives participants at least twice as much participation as the single elimination –Holds interest longer –Gives a second chance to still win! Disadvantages: –Complicated to show graphically Loser rounds keep adding new contestants as teams lose in the winners rounds Confusion to those not familiar with tournament format
3-16 Formulas double the single elimination –Number of entries: N = 13 Minimum = 2N-2, 2(13)-2 = 26-2 = 24 min games Maximum = 2N-1, 2(13)-1 = 26-1= 25 max games –Occurs when the champion of the losers bracket defeats the champion of the winners bracket, thus creating an extra game.
4-16 Consolation Tournaments Each entry participates in at least two contests Produces two winners: –champion (winner) of the elimination bracket –Winner of consolation bracket Two types: –Type A – simple consolation All losers in the first round play another single elimination tournament. Winner of the second single elimination is the consolation winner –Type B – second place consolation Opportunity for any loser, regardless of round the loss occurred, to win the consolation championship
5-16 Challenge Tournaments Ongoing tournaments Emphasize participation rather than winning Contestants issue and accept challenge matches from each other –Winning all challenges and advancing to the top of the tournament structure All contestants continue to play regardless of outcome of the challenge Used primarily with individual or duel sport, but can be used in team sport
