Pool Single Playoff Bracket

A pool play single playoff bracket is a division in which a pool play group schedule qualifies into based on final standings within a flight.

Normally the pool play single playoff bracket is a single elimination bracket, but sometimes a director changes the playoff format to a . Round robin tournament bracket.

Any number of players from each group can advance to the pool play single playoff bracket, but typically only the first, or first and second place finishers would advance.

Before the competitors who advance are determined, on the pool play single playoff bracket it will say Group 1: 1st, or Group 2: 2nd. That refers to the spot that team will drop to once the group play results are determined.


Allows winners from group pool play brackets to play-off to determine a champion for the division.

A team winning second in the pool play group schedule earns a lower seeding in the playoff division, but can still be the division champion.

A great way to offer more play time for divisions with 6 or more players when the round robin would require too many matches to be played.


Players losing multiple times in the group pool play brackets may be eliminated from making it the pool play single playoff bracket and have little incentive to continue to compete.
