    Hey y'all. I was thinking about playing in a turn based tournament and noticed that the 2 game match one says tie break used but its a 3 day per move time control. What type of tie break, I can't play speed on my phone and its the only internet connection I've got. The round robins say tie break used too. Can anyone explain how that works. Thank you

    As Martin_Stahl's link will show, it's not a playoff, but a mathematical tiebreak system.

    Based on the that question and the title of the topic, I guess you mean with two players in each bracket. I think, if tie breaks are used, then both players move on, though I can't say for sure.

    I know in other cases, say, 2 or 3 move through, if the final place is tied on the score and tied on the tie break, both will move through to the next round.
