Olympic Draw Format
The diagram below illustrates how the Olympic draw format works for a
16-player Division. All players start in the Gold round of 16. Winners continue
in the Gold bracket, while losers drop down to the Red bracket, etc.
guarantees at least 3 matches per player. The draw shown also includes
playoffs to decide 3rd/4th place for each bracket (this would be a 4th match
for a 16-player draw; this 4th match is not guaranteed if the draw starts
with 32 players)
