    I really hoped that tournaments had its own ratings. My rating has inflated beyond reason. 

    I joined this tournament when I was @ 1500 rating and having won most of my games along the way, it has inflated close to ~1900. Makes no sense. I am inclined to stop playing the "slow" version of chess or, at the least, just quit playing tournaments from now on.

    in this tournement it's the sum of the scores of your oppenents multiplied by your score over them, for example you beat an opponent who have 6 points, your tie break is 6, if you beat him two times it's 6*2=12, and if you draw with him it's 6*0.5=3, it's used in case of equality between two or more players, the point is that this tie break give advantage to the player who have scored well agianst the stongest players of the group!
