Can someone explain the tiebreaker in the Competition?Author  Message

 According to the help page, the tiebreaker for this game works like this:
In Einstein you get a point for each game you win in the match. When your opponent resigns or times out, you simply get 2 points.
I'm looking at the current Competition and can't seem to make sense of how the tiebreaker gets scored. Currently, the top 2 in my group looks like this:
1 falluper 2 (21) 0 (12) 2 (20) 2 (20) (11) 6 4 1 Marc1974 0 (12) 0 (12) 2 (20) 2 (20) 2 (01) 6 4
We each have 6 points because we've each won 3 games. Where do the 4 tiebreaker points come from?   GORG 26102010 19:32:04
 The tiebreaker is just the total difference in points in each finished game. A 20 win gives you +2 in the tiebreaker, a 21 win gives you +1 and so on.
In your competition bracket, you have two 20 wins (+4), a 21 win (+1) and a 21 loss (1) for a total tiebreaker of +4.
Marc1974 has two 20 wins (+4), two 21 losses (2) and a win over Vommel on time that results in a +2 in the tiebreaker for a total of +4.

 Thanks for the explanation. Of course, now it seems perfectly obvious, but I just couldn't figure it out!
