In a three-player game, first place will get 0 strikes, second place will get 1 strike, third place will get 2 strikes (0/1/2) Five strikes and you are eliminated from the tournament. The tournament will resume until there is only one player without five strikes!
• Matchups:
Players are paired with opponents who have roughly the same amount of points (in match play-style tournaments) or strikes (in knockout tournaments). For knockout tournaments in particular, Swiss pairings is an effective way to cut down the amount of rounds required. In head-to-head tournaments, a simple attempt to pick opponents that haven’t been faced before in the tournament will occur, but only among players who are tied. In group tournaments, no such attempt will be made. It is normal for a player to play against the same opponent multiple times when using swiss pairings.
