what exactly is the reason for arena tournaments and how long do they last.

123Check456

Arena tournaments can last from half an hour to 1 day

You have to play back to back games or even exit the tournament after some time

so I assume you get a point for a win , how does the arena session end. how do you become the winner

In arena tournaments, the search for your next game starts immediately after your current game is done. You don’t have to wait for a round of games to finish.

You get extra points per game for consecutive wins. Win streaks are good. When the arena ends, the player with the most points wins. See link for scoring.
