Winning a round earns you three points, drawing a round (tie) earns both players one point. Sometimes players win rounds automatically due to an uneven number of participants, these wins are called "byes" and also count three points. Players are always paired against opponents with a close point rating, therefore the good players will eventually clash, while the learning players can duke it out on their own. Take note that two players can only meet each other once during the tournament, so you will get a new opponent every round.
By the end of the tournament the player with most points wins. Point ties will be resolved by Tiebreaker scores.
