    Guys, in the incidence of 3 way tie, the total no of matches come into play to select a winner, followed by the winner between the next 2 teams.

    Eg, MAS and ENG both win next match (not likely for MAS), CHN will still be group champs based on matches won (no way in hell will CHN lose 5-0), ENG will accompany CHN as they had beaten MAS, irrespective if MAS had a better win-loss match ratio than ENG.

    If MAS and ENG both lose (not likely for ENG), then the 2nd place winner will depend on the match win-loss ratio alone. In this case, ENG are not likely to qualify (their best win-loss ratio will be 5-10, assuming they lose 2-3)

    In which case THA need to blank ENG 5-0 to have a ghost of a chance, and MAS have to lose to CHN by 1-4 margin or more. Any other scoreline will let MAS through.

    In the other group, I can say that INA should be safely through, a 3-2 win over HK is all they need. However the outcome of whether they can avoid CHN is not in their hands anymore.

    Things are tougher for DEN, they must force a 4-1 victory over KOR to accompany INA. Any less and KOR qualify as group champions with INA in 2nd place.

    Let me try to summarise it:

    (1) CHN & KOR are at the top of the tables and have secured themselves into SF.

    (2) In case of a tie in # of plays won, # of matches won/lost ratio will determine who advances.
    Again, in case of a tie in # of matches won/lost, # of games won/lost ratio will decide who advances.
    Further, in case of a tie in # of games won/lost, # of points won/lost will determine who advances.

    Robin7, please go to the day 3 thread to see the official rules which was posted by Dmitry. There is a head to head factor which you did not take into acount in your explanation.

    That's exactly what I'm trying to explain.

    Plus, ENG is ahead of MAS in terms of ranking because ENG beat MAS. I guess this is what you called "Head to head factor".

    Except you never mentioned head to head as a tiebreaker option in your explanation.
