Tie-Break Procedures

In case two or more players are tied for first place, the following tie-break procedure will apply:

1) Head to head result.  This will only apply if all the players in a tied group played each other.

2) Tie-break match. If two players are tied, they will play a two-game match with the time control of Game/10

minutes 5 seconds per move.

If more than two players are tied, they will play a round-robin tournament with the same time controls. If the tie

is still not broken, the procedure will be repeated; however, the time control will be:

Game/3 minutes 2 seconds/move time control. 

Tie-breaks for all other places will be determined by the following criteria:

If Swiss system pairing system is used:

a) Buchholz (total scores of opponents)

b) Sonnenborn-Berger (total scores of opponents beaten plus half the scores of opponents drawn)

c) Most wins

d)Most games with the black pieces.
