m (14 Jul 2011 16:11): With four tied teams a,b,c,d with descending tiebreak scores, appropriate behavior is (I think) to play a/d, b/c.
With three tied teams a,b,c and with d the top tiebreak of the next score down, how do we match them? a/d? c/d? b/d? I think it's a/d for consistency, but isn't that being too hard on team d? Should a play team z, the bottom tiebreak of the next tier down (with b/c, d/y)?
