Last night in our semi-finals (3 games, 4,2,1,0) one group was 6,6,1,1 after 2. The 1s declared that they forfeit the last match since they cannot advance, each for their own reasons. I was using matchplay, so I needed enter something to advance the tournament. I gave chose to put in an arbitrary finishing order. In reality, the 6s didn’t play either, since we didn’t see the point. So maybe they also forfeited.
Now I am trying to decide how to order the finishing. I think I will give them each a final score of 1 (getting a zero in the final game). It impacts if there is a 3 way tie for 6-8 or if one of them gets a point for having the other forfeit first.
