I've already told you about my event in Hamburg during Easter. Out of it I'm sharing the following problem with you:
After the Round Robin in Alster Act 17 we ended up with a five way tie!
One sailor winning all his matches, five sailors winning four matches each and two sailor losing all (but one) their matches: The scoring looked like this:
The rules in the book have a solution for this tie.
As a umpire you will be frequently asked by the RC to help or check the scoring in a case like this. The first thing the RC needs are the four sailors who will be going on to the Semi finals. And then you must calculate the places 5 trough 8. Please leave your solution in a comment.
I will wait publishing comments for three days, so you need to find to solution yourself.
Oooh, there's one more data sheet you need to solve this: The pairing list of the Round Robin.
