I understand(to the best of my ability) the Elo system, the win/loss gain, favored to win/favored to lose, differences with Duo/all solo, K-Factor, etc.

My question is: are there mini brackets, or just one big one?

Exp:
Favored to win, outcome-win: +9
Favored to win, outcome-win +10
Favored to win, outcome-win +11
Favored to lose, outcome-win +12
Favored to lose, outcome-win +13
Favored to lose, outcome-win +14

If you went on a 20 game win streak(lol), would it ever reset to the start, as if it's a mini bracket? Or would you just be more and more favored to win against your opponents, and winning would give you.. say +20? Or does it reset once you've lost a match, or by itself after X number of wins?
(After gain/loss has stabilized at the average[10-14] after Y number of games played)
