There’s been a fair bit of fudging or making it up as I go along I’ve tried to remain consistent though with decisions I’ve made earlier in the tournament even if they have shown to be sub optimal after a bit of practice.
Such is the case with breaking ties on the table. I started doing it that way because it was the quickest way for me to re-sort the table by hand! Now that I’ve seen just how often players are tied, and how that directly ties to which table you sit at, I think it would be worth looking at a different system for next time.
I think at the end it would be fair for every tied player to consider themselves to have an equal share of that rank, and I’ll make the final table to reflect that. The World Cup currently has a number of interesting ways to break ties, but I think if we were doing something similar we should have ruled at the start rather than at the end.
