Knockout tournaments

Knockout tournaments are the simplest elimination tournament format. Over a number of rounds, players are paired against each other in two-player games. Each time a player loses a match, they receive a strike. When a player reaches a predetermined amount of strikes, they are eliminated from the tournament and will not be included in the next round of matches. At the end of the tournament, the last player standing is the winner.
