What happens if there is a tie in a tournament?

In the event of a tie in a cash tournament, the prize is divided between the tied players:

  • If there is only one prize for the tournaments, the amount of the prize is simply divided evenly between the tied player
  • If there are multiple prizes, then the prizes for the tied spots are added together, and the total is then divided between the tied players

For example, there is a three-way tie for first place in a cash tournament, and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes are $25, $15, and $8. These prizes would be added together, and the total amount ($48) would then be split between the three tied players. In this example, each player would receive $16 (one-third of the $48 total). If there was a 4th place prize, it would go to whomever has the next highest score below the three tied players, and so on.

Prizes are not divided in Merchandise or Ladders. In the event of a tie in either of these tournament types, the player who posted the tying score 1st will have finished ahead of the other tying player(s) and will be declared the winner of the tournament. For Survivals - In the event of a tie, both players will be required to play the same round again. Players for each round are matched in the order that they play their games, so players that tied will not necessarily play each other again.
