*for tiebreaks, we summed the place in their respective section(s) of the three players whose scores cumulated to make up the team score. This is a variant on the combined team / tiebreak method used by USCF for combined individual / team events that is intended to take into account the different sized-sections that make up each team division at our tournament. Lowest score wins.
