Tie Breaking Procedure for Round Robin Draws 

All competitors (whether in team or individual competition) play one another in a pool to establish an order of merit.  The final order is decided, taking account of all results in that pool (e.g.  Each match in an individual event, or encounter in a team event, is recorded as a win or a loss, with a win worth one point), as follows:

  • If two competitors are tied, the winner will be determined by the head-to-head result between the two competitors.

  • If three (or more) competitors are tied, the winner will be determined by the head-to-head results among the tied competitors:

First by the greater number of matches won against the tied competitors;
If equal, by the greater number of games won against the tied competitors;
If equal, by the greater positive difference between the games won and lost among the tied competitors;
If equal, by the greater positive difference between the points won and lost among the tied competitors.

If any of the above criteria result in a tie between two competitors, then revert to the procedure for two competitors tied (head-to-head result between the two competitors).
