How are scores calculated?

A win has a base score of 2 points, a draw 1 point, and a loss is worth no points. If you win two games consecutively you will start a double point streak, represented by a flame icon. The following games will continue to be worth double points until you fail to win a game. That is, a win will be worth 4 points, a draw 2 points, and a loss will still not award any points.

For example, two wins followed by a draw will be worth 6 points: 2 + 2 + (2 x 1)


How is the winner decided?

The player(s) with the most points at the conclusion of the tournament's set time limit will be announced winner(s).

When two players have the same number of points, the tournament performance is the tie break.
