Win and Continue Team Tournament Format

    Keywords: Tournament

There are a number of Team Tournament Formats. The one described here is used in the Nongshim Cup, the Cheongkwanjang Cup, GG Auction Cup and Yayi Cup Tournaments.

Each team has the same number of players. Each team designates the order in which their players will participate. The first player from each team is paired against a first player from another team. The losing player is knocked out of the tournament, and the second player from that team plays in the next round. While the pairing system appears to be similar to round robin, only a single game is played at a time. The tournament ends when all the players of every team but one have been eliminated. The remaining team is the tournament winner.
