i noticed someone in my tournament advance because of tie break and i think i might need more tie break points then someone who has the same amount of wins as me so im just wondering how this "tie break" thing is calculated?
Basically, you get a tie-break point whenever someone you beat beats someone else. It's the combined tournament scores of every person in the tournament that you have beaten. To see more information on the tie-break system used here at Chess.com, see this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonneborn-Berger_system
