|Double Elimination Tournaments
In this type of tournament you have to lose two matches before you are eliminated. After you lose your first match, your team then moves into the lower bracket. You continue playing matches in that lower bracket until you receive your second loss, at which point you are out of the tournament. However, if you win all the matches in the lower bracket you then play the winner of the upper bracket. Since the winner of the upper bracket has not yet lost, the winner of the lower bracket must beat the winner of the upper bracket twice in order to win the tournament. The winner of the upper bracket only needs to win one of the two matches to win the tournament. If the winner of the upper bracket wins the first game then no second game is required.
