6.1.- Registration players
The Tournament Director is responsible for registering players who want to participate in the tournament.

6.2.- Tournament draws
IFBT Competition Committee proposes the organization of the tournament in two phases: Round-robin and eliminatory draws

Round Robin: All teams will be divided in groups of three, the remaining teams will be placed in the last or two last groups that they will have four teams.
This phase will be organized as Group Play (Round-robin style/all-play-all).
it is used to order teams of each group as first, second or third. This order will be passed to the final draws.
In the case of groups of four the last of each group is eliminated.

Criteria for solving ties in Round Robin groups.
Typically, in ties Round Robin groups occurs, next is detailed the procedures to rank correctly the teams.

First:
When a tie between two teams occurs check results between the two teams involved and the team who won between them is ranked higher.

Second:
The difference between won games and lost games between teams involved.

How to proceed in this case:

The solution is very easy. Check results between the two teams involved and the team who won between them is ranked higher.

Three teams tied in the same group
Here you can see there are groups with are tied in the number of matches won.

How to proceed in this case:

- The number of games wins versus losses is derived from the sum of horizontal games (wins) minus the sum of the vertical games (losses).

 

 In the next group we have a tie between two teams (1# and 3#) check results between two teams involved, and who won between them is ordered higher.
