If there are multiple perfect brackets or ties at the top, the tiebreaker system below will become quite important.

  1. Your prediction of the final match score in the finals (for reference, in the 2021 IMSCC, 12.5-7.5 was the score of the final).
  2. If no entry predicted the correct score, the contest winner is whoever was nearest to the correct margin of victory.
  3. If that is tied, the contest winner is whoever was closest to the correct score for the tournament winner.
  4. The last tiebreaker is the order your bracket was submitted, earlier is better. Why not create your bracket now?
