Ties in the final standings for third/fourth, fifth/sixth, and eighth/ninth are the important ones, and all are possible.
We haven't been tracking points (which is fine; tracking points is over-rated), so that is out as a tie-breaker, and I doubt "most wins" or "most whatever" is going to break any ties. I think the tied players will end up with identical records.
But I should get this on the record, especially as my personal total here could easily have me end up in a tie for the eighth and final spot. Let's not have any shenanigans.
Here's our tie-breakers:
- Most wins (FWIW; I don't think this will come into play);
- Record against tied opponents;
- Record against our final first-place finisher ... then, if still tied, record against second-place finisher ... and repeat, as needed;
- Total panic.
