2020 Calgary Regional Challenge Tie Breaks 

In case two or more players are tied for 1st 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 tie they will play a two game match with time control of 3 minutes plus 2 seconds increment. If more than two players are tied, they will play a single round-robin tournament with the same time controls. If the tie is still not broken the procedure will be repeated using “ARMAGEDDON Rules”; however, if only two players are tied, they will only play one game with the colours determined at random. 

  3. Tie-breaks for all other places will be determined with the following criteria:
