Target match play

Target match play is a variant of Group match play. Instead of play happening over a set number of rounds, the tournament organizer defines a target number of points. When a player accumulates enough points to reach the target, they are no longer included in future rounds. The winner of the tournament is the player who first reaches the target.

Target match play is especially suited as a qualifying tournament where the tournament organizer defines both a target number of points and a number of players to advance from the target match play tournament to a playoffs tournament. The tournament will conclude when the chosen number of players have reached the target number of points. Then the players are moved to a playoffs tournament.
