Tournament Format: Knock-Out

How does it work?

A knock-out or strikes tournament means you are afforded x-number of losses before you’re knocked out of the tournament. This is a very common format with quite a few variations. First, let’s define a few terms.

  • Head-to-Head
    2 players compete against one another on the same machine for the higher score.
  • Group
    players compete in 3 or 4 person groups on the same machine for the highest score.
  • Best of
    Each round may consist of 1 game or a best of x-number of games. So a Best of 3 means you must win 2 of the 3 games. Occasionally Best of 5 or Best of 7 is used though these formats are typically reserved for championships and not local monthly events.
