The ranking depends on the number of team points (win = 2 team points, draw = 1 team point, lose = 0 team points). If the number of team points are equal as well the points scored at the individual boards are added up. If further differentiation is needed the ‘Buchholz-Wertung' is decisive.
Awarding of the top scorers (at each board): The number of points is decisive for the ranking, should there be equality the better proportional result comes first. At least five games must be played for an award.
