Chess Tie break

    Each group has two players. 1st player wins on time after 12 moves, then loses by checkmate in the second game, do both players still advance?

    I don't like tie break system. I lost against another player and I won the tournament because of tie break. I think it's not fair because of our direct match.

    I understand the feelings here but consider that even though player A  lost against player B, player A won against those to whom player B lost. So player A had the best overall performance.

    I don't like it either. I beat much stronger opponents than the guy who beat me in the tie breaker. 3/4 of his opponents were weaker and the one wasn't that much higher. I beat one opponent with 104 rating higher and one with a 45 rating higher right after that.
