    Womens IHWC 2016 IIHF World Div.IIA Championship - Bled, Slovenia; 2nd-8th Apr.

    POL,KOR,GBR all with 9 points.

    IIHF site always says for tiebreaker rules check "Competition Format&Rules" this page seem nowhere to be found for each tourney!?

    Does anyone know the tiebreaker rules here?

    Esp. why KOR is listed before GBR?

    thanks.

    Games between the teams tied determine the tie-breaker.

    With three teams tied a mini-table is created just counting these games. In this case:

    GBR-KOR 0-1
    KOR-POL 1-2
    POL-GBR 1-2

    TeamPointsGF-GA
    POL3pts3-3
    KOR3pts2-2
    GBR3pts2-2

    Poland is first according to Step 3. Then the tie-breaker between GBR and KOR is that KOR won that game.

    The tie-breaking system for two teams with the same number of points in a standing will be the game between the two teams, the winner of the game taking precedence.

    Due to the fact that the three-point system does not allow a game to end in a tie, then the following tie breaking procedure is applicable when three or more teams are tied in points in a Championship standing.

    Should three or more teams be tied on points, then a tie breaking formula will be applied as follows, creating a sub-group amongst the tied teams. This process will continue until only two teams remain tied. The game between the two remaining tied teams would then be the determining tie-breaker as the game between these two teams could not end as a tie.

    Step 1:
    Taking into consideration the games between each of the tied teams, a sub-group is created applying the points awarded in the direct games amongst the tied teams from which the teams are then ranked accordingly.

    Step 2:
    Should the teams still remain tied then the better goal difference in the direct games amongst the tied teams will be decisive.

    Step 3:
    Should the teams still remain tied then the highest number of goals scored by these teams in their direct games will be decisive

    Step 4:
    Should three or more teams still remain tied then the results between each of the three teams and the closest best-ranked team outside the sub-group will be applied. In this case the tied team with the best result (1. points, 2. goal difference, 3. more goals scored) against the closest best ranked-team will take precedence

    Step 5:
    Should the teams still remain tied, then the results between each of the three teams and the next highest best-ranked team outside the sub-group will be applied.

    Step 6:
    Should the teams still remain tied after these five steps have been exercised then Sport considerations will be applied and the tied teams will be ranked by their positions coming into the Championship.

    Note: If not all mutual games have been played yet in an ongoing tournament, the tied teams will be ranked in the standings according to the following criteria: 1. Lower number of games played, 2. Goal difference, 3. Goals scored, 4. Positions coming into the Championship.

    If all three teams lose today (unlikely, I know) we would have a four-way tie at 9pts. That's a situation I've never seen...

    The table before the Korea match says:

    GBR
    POL..

    i assume when Korea wins later, the table will move back to:

    POL
    KOR
    GBR

    because of the 3-way tie rules?

    Exactly, in head to head GBR won over Poland, but not in the three way tie.

    IIHF has jumped the gun a bit, they have already noted Poland for promotion even though the final game is still on.
