Players forfeit their games if they are 30 minutes late to the board. This applies to the board only and not the whole team.

Tie Break Principles

Dr Charles Zworestine, the arbiter of the 2009 ASTC has announced the following tie break principles will be applied should the situation arise.

a. Each Championship shall be won by the team having the highest team points being the sum of points scored by all individual members of the team.

b. If more than one team in a Championship has the same number of team points, the following tie-break principles apply in the order listed:

(i) match points - 2 for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss;
(ii) team points scored in matches between the tied teams - eg if 3 teams in a tie each team would have a score out of 12;
(iii) as in (ii) but with preference given to wins on the highest board.

c. If, after applying (i) to (iii), any teams are still tied, the title is to be shared by those teams.
