If you have ever played a world pro tour event, you are probably familiar with the term “lucky loser”. So what does it mean?
A lucky loser is a player who loses in an event but still advances due to an opening in the draw. For example, if there are 152 players entered in one pro tour event, there might be 32 players seeded into the single elimination and 120 players competing in round robin groups. There would be 30 groups of 4 players per group with the winners advancing to meet the 32 seeded players.
