A tournament bracket is a method of game play that is commonly used in sports to determine winners after multiple rounds of play, where the winner of each matchup in each round advances to subsequent rounds. Here’s an overview by Wikipedia:
A bracket or tournament bracket is a tree diagram that represents the series of games played during a knockout tournament. Different knockout tournament formats have different brackets; the simplest and most common is that of the single-elimination tournament. The name “bracket” is American English, derived from the resemblance of the links in the tree diagram to the bracket punctuation symbol ] or [ (called a “square bracket” in British English). The closest British term is draw, although this implies an element of chance, whereas some brackets are determined entirely by seeding.
