Bridge can be as bad as NASA for confusing acronyms and lingo!

Knockout (KO): A team game in which the team losing a match is eliminated. (If the number of teams entering is not a power of 2, three-way matches will be used until a power of 2 is reached.) Typically the matches last for a whole session or even two sessions, except in a Zip KO where short matches are played and the whole event is completed in a single session.
