However, this is not the case for those who are in the winners’ bracket. The winners bracket is only eliminated if they lose two best-of-5s. Basically, if you loose the first game in the winners bracket, depending on where you were in in the regular season standings, you will either meet the winner of game one or game two in the loser bracket. Imagine, for example, that you were fourth in regular division and lose to the winners bracket. You will be playing in the second round of the loser brackets if the team that lost in winners bracket was over you in regular Split. 

Final note: If you win the first game in the winners bracket but lose the second, you can still play yourself in the final game. You will meet the winning team in the finals if you have won both of the games in the winners bracket.
