    Scoring Programs

    Mackinac Island has used the Sevilla scoring program.  It is a free download. 
     

    Tie-Breakers

    If two players have the same score, Mackinac Island uses the Buchholz score as a tiebreaker.  It’s an analysis of the scores of the opponents.  The player who has had tougher opponents wins the tie-breaker. 

    The Sonneborn-Berger score is used as a second tiebreaker if both regular score and Buchholz scores are ties.  The computer calculates its value by adding the total scores of the opponents defeated, and by adding half of the total score of the opponents drawn.
