In the event of a tie in a cash tournament, the prize is divided between the tied players:
- If there is only 1 prize for the tournament, the prize amount is simply divided evenly between the tied players.
- If there are multiple prizes, then the prizes for the tied spots are added together, and the total is then divided between the tied players.
For example, there is a 3-way tie for first place and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes are $25, $15, and $8. These prizes would be added together, and the total amount ($48) would then be split between the three tied players. In this example, each player would receive $16 (one-third of the $48 total). If there was a 4th place prize, it would go to whomever has the next highest score below the three tied players, and so on.
