At the conclusion of a pool, the pool finish positions of the teams are determined by their pool match record. The Tour of Texas will only play off any tie that eliminates teams from advancing to the gold bracket. Ties that do not eliminate a team from the gold bracket - pool play will be determined by match, set, point percentage. All two-way ties, regardless of advancing, will be determined by head-to-head. Playoff matches will be scheduled at the conclusion of pool play. All tiebreakers will be played one set to 25 points.


Please refer to the flow charts for the 2019 Tour of Texas Stops to see
how many teams can still advance to the gold bracket.
Tie Breaking Scenarios
1. For 3 teams tied in a pool with only 1 team advancing: all 3 teams participate in the tie breaker.
  • Set 1: the #2 seed will play the #3 seed (based on match, set, and point percentages), and the #1 seed officiates. The loser of set 1 will be 3rd in the pool and will officiate the next tie breaker set.
  • Set 2: the #1 seed will play the winner of set 1. The winner of set 2 will finish first in the pool and the loser will finish second in the pool.
2. For 3 teams tied in a pool with 2 teams advancing: the #1 seed (based on match, set, and point ratios) will finish 1st in the pool and will not have a playoff set.
  • Set 1: the # 2 seed will play the #3 seed with the #1 seed officiating. The winner of this set will finish second in the pool and the loser of this set will finish third in the pool.

*Should any team in a tie breaker scenario leave without performing the appropriate duty, they will forfeit their position in that tie breaker.
