BReaking Ties: Individual & Pairs
When it is determined that a tie is to be broken the following rules will apply
IN PAIRS AND INDIVIDUAL EVENTS
Single Session Events :
1.By the result between the contestants when they played each other.
2.If the pairs did not meet, the winner is the pair with the most match points against the next highest ranking pair or pairs that all the tied pairs played against. Should a tie still exist, the foregoing procedure shall be used with the next highest ranking pair or pairs that all the tied pairs played against until the tie is broken.
3.If the tie is still unbroken then all boards which the contestants played are examined:On the common boards played: 2 points are awarded to the pair with the best matchpoint score and 1 point is awarded to both pairs f the scores are tied.
On the remaining boards played: 2 points are awarded to a pair if they score above average (their opponents score zero), 1 point is awarded to the pair if they score average (their opponents also get 1 point) and 0 points are awarded to a pair if they score below average (their opponents are awarded 2 points).
Multi Session Events:
The winner is the pair with highest percentage score in its best session. If there is still a tie the highest score in two sessions is the winner. Further ties are broken likewise.
