when do we use the best out of three games and best out of four games?in our tournament or even in the World team championships they use the best out of three games,but when in the WTTC or world cup or any other international individual games they use the best out of four games.how should know when to use the best out of three or four games?
Thanks for the question. Firstly, just to get the terminology correct a match that is a best of 7 games means one player needs to win 4 games to win and a best of 5 games means they have to win 3 games.
The rules say a match can be any number of uneven games so you can have 1, 3, 5 etc.
They use best of 5 and 7 mainly in bigger competitions. There is no set rule though. It depends on the importance of the competition and the amount of time and tables available.
So, if you only have a short amount of time and tables you can just do best of 1 game, or if there is a lot of time and tables then use best of 7 games.
