Tiebreaks for MSO 2019
Published on: 30 June 2019
Swiss Perfect will be used for pairing 2 player games and its default tiebreaks will be applied: Median Bucholz followed by Bucholz followed by Progressive. For more information and for tiebreak rules applied to multiplayer games visit our Rules Page. Exceptions to the two player Swiss Perfect tiebreak system include Scrabble, but not Entropy or Backgammon both of which will not be using spreads this year. Automating and standardizing our tiebreaks will ensure that arbiters can concentrate on running tournaments smoothly. We intend to monitor the new system and get feedback to consider future modifications.
