Other Points

DefaultsWhen a player who is listed to play fails to arrive (or arrives too late to play) and subsequently defaults their grade will remain in the calculation for the purposes of Rules 1 - 3.
Where a team defaults on the bottom board(s) without naming a player(s), the grade taken for the purposes of Rules 1 - 3 will be the same as the grade of the player on the board immediately above the default(s).
SubstitutionsWhen a player is used as a "substitute" to replace a listed player who is absent, the grade taken for the purposes of Rules 1 - 3 will be the higher of (a) the grade of the absent listed player and (b) the grade of the "substitute player".
Tie-BreakIf the final match scores are tied, the bottom board elimination rule will apply, i.e. re-calculate the scores ignoring board 6. If board 6 is drawn ignore board 5 etc. If all matches are drawn and no handicap is given to either side, a re-match will take place.
