How are the scores calculated?

A victory brings 2 points, a draw 1 point and a defeat no points. If you win two consecutive games, you will start a series of points which will count double. This series is represented by a flame icon. The games that follow will then count double as long as you win. In other words, a victory will be worth 4 points, a draw 2 points and a defeat no points. For example, two wins followed by a draw will earn 6 points: 2 + 2 + (2 x 1)
