Ties in Round Robin
In the event of a tied number of wins in a round robin competition, a countback will be made of the winners points scored, if the scores remain equal a countback will be made of the opponents points which will then be deducted from the winners total points to find the person with the highest difference between the two scores.​​

Example: Players A & B score a maximum of 7 wins each = 847 points.


Player A's opponents total scores = 800 a difference of 47

Player B's opponents scores = 700 a difference of 147

Player B is the winner as the difference between the two scores is higher.
