Can someone explain the tiebreaker in the Competition?

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 (2-1) 0 (1-2) 2 (2-0) 2 (2-0) (1-1) 6 4
1 Marc1974 0 (1-2) 0 (1-2) 2 (2-0) 2 (2-0) 2 (0-1) 6 4

We each have 6 points because we've each won 3 games. Where do the 4 tiebreaker points come from?

The tiebreaker is just the total difference in points in each finished game. A 2-0 win gives you +2 in the tiebreaker, a 2-1 win gives you +1 and so on.

In your competition bracket, you have two 2-0 wins (+4), a 2-1 win (+1) and a 2-1 loss (-1) for a total tiebreaker of +4.

Marc1974 has two 2-0 wins (+4), two 2-1 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!
