Multiply your individual score against each opponent by that opponent's total score. Add up all these for each opponent.

For the example in the help.

Group #--123PointsTie Break
1. Bob X 0 1 1 1 3 4.5
2. Mary 0 1 X 0 0.5 1.5 3.75
3. John 0 0 0.5 1 X 1.5 2.25

Bob vs Mary: 1 times 1.5 = 1.5

Bob vs John: 2 times 1.5 = 3.0

Bob's tiebreak = 1.5 + 3.0 = 4.5
