    Ok...that's correct for the early rounds but what happens if there is a tie in the final round? Is there a playoff (tiebreaker) or is the tournament "shared"?

    to complicate matters further, im playing in a tourney where it is still possible for three players in the one section can finish on 12 points, do all three go through?

    Yes. I've seen this happen in tournaments that I've been involved in.

    Yes, if the final round is tied, the players go through and there's another round. If that's tied, there's yet another round... I don't think there's ever a stage at which the tournament is shared. Although perhaps if both players complained to Russ that they'd had enough, he might step in and put an end to their misery ;-)

    I guess this is going to happen in my first tourny final,I won the first game and due to being overconfident I'm losing the other one,so we'll have to go with a two match repetition.
    Regarding both players advancing and making tournaments too long, I put my example:in ''The Rookie cup II'' initial # of entrants was 32.
    Well,after the 2nd round will finish ,in the best of hypothesis ,there will be 16 players in the 3rd round,the exact half of entrants at the beginning!taking two six-months-longs rounds to eliminate only half of contenders..............................
    However there's no suitable criterium to solve the ''1:1 thing'' because the ones suggested in the past are not fair and totally casual (lowest rating pass,the one who won with less moves,pieces counting).......................
