    Shaolin...I believe 6(2)>1 means there are 6 players per group and they are playing 2 games each (one as black and one as white) and only one can advance, unless there is a tie (including the tie-breaker). Not sure about this though.

    Thanks Lee-or, also what does the format 6(2)->1 mean?

    Only the one with the most points will advance (win - 1, draw - 0.5 loss - 0)

    If there is a tie in the points then the tie breakers come into action

    If both are the same then both players advance.

    tie break is a sum of score that your opponents which you've won have. You've beaten a one whose score 4 - you've got tie break increased by 4, a draw - 2 for you.

    jomoheip...you get 1 point for each win and 1/2 point for a draw. The tie breakers are calculated by your wins against the other opponents and how they are doing. I think the tie breaking points can change according to how your opponents (the ones you beat) are doing, so that will adjust as each of the games are finished. So, if the players you beat do good your tie breaking points will increase more and if they lose then they will decrease. The tie breakers are used only if there is a tie at the end of 1st round of play, otherwise they are not used. Hope this helps.
