Format

For competitions involving 6 participants, a mixed system of round robin and elimination is employed. For competitions with more than 6 participants, a mixed system of elimination and repechage is followed.

Round Robin + Elimination

Two groups of three partipants start to fight each other within their group. This is followed by the semi-finals where the first of group 1 competes with the second of group 2 and vice versa. Eventually, the finals determine the winner.

Elimination + Repechage

The winner is determined by direct elimination in two tables. However, participants defeated by the two finalists take part in the loser's pool of their table to eventually fight against their counterpart of the other table.
