Tie Breaker

  • In Weight Lifting, the tie breaker winner is the one with a lower body weight.
  • In High Jump and Pole Vault, the tie breaker winner is the one with less misses.
  • In a knock out game in Soccer, a tied game in regulation time goes into overtime.
    If the overtime does not produce a winner, Penalty Kicks are taken to break the tie.
  • In Ice Hockey, a tied game in regulation time goes into overtime.
    If the overtime does not produce a winner, Penalty Shootouts are taken to break the tie.
  • In a knock out game in Golf, a tied game after 72 holes goes into a “Sudden Death” play (of one or more extra holes).
  • In most Tennis championships, a tied set with 6 games each goes into the Tie breaker game (of 12 or more points, with the winner needing two more points). Thus, the final score would be marked 7-6 (followed by the points in the Tie Breaker).
  • Some Tennis Championships do not allow Tie Breaker in the fifth and final set. Some games with a long set (with 20 or more games) leave the players and viewers exhausted.

No Tie

  • In Basketball, a tied game continues with one or more overtime.
  • In Baseball, a tied game continues with one or more extra innings.
