In the event of a tie...

  1. the player with the greater number of "maximum pointers" in the current round is deemed the winner;
  2. NEW if still tied, calculate the sum of each player's predicted scores for this round and the player closest to goals scored in the round (displayed in brackets above) is deemed the winner
  3. if still tied, the player with more points from the previous round is deemed the winner;
  4. if still tied, repeat these same tie-breakers for each round before until a winner can be declared
  5. in the event that a winner cannot be determined, a decision will be made by @downwithdesign, @kirstieh and @gerrymulvenna
