You don’t need to beat everyone in a tournament

Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

After the draws for the bracket at the PGL Krakow Major, I kept reading this statement, “In a tournament, you have to beat everyone.”

Actually, that is blatantly false. With the way the tournament is setup, SK or Astralis will be eliminated in the quarterfinals. Let’s look at the bottom half of the bracket. This means that BIG will not have had to beat Astralis.¬†Immortals, North, and Virtus.Pro will not have had to beat either of Astralis or SK. I don’t even know where this line of thinking can come from.
