tie breaking rules[edit]

China is qualified. Even if they finish tied with KOR and MAS, each of them with one win and two losses, they will have 172 points for and 85 against in the head-to-head games. At least one of the other two will have to have more points against than they have scored, so the worst China can be is 3rd.18abruce (talk) 14:58, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

This has been resolved. Thanks. –HTD 15:15, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
Disagree. China has not advanced yet for the following reason: possible forfeiture AND Malaysia win against Korea. The latter teams would have 4 points, leaving China with 3 points. However, China advances by default or by completing the game. Great50 (talk) 17:29, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
This is true but on almost all situations such as this, it is assumed that the team will show up and play, and will not royally screw themselves that might lead to forfeiture... –HTD 17:37, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
