For those that are interested The Buchholz system (also spelled Buchholtz) is a ranking system developed by Bruno Buchholz in 1932, for Swiss system tournaments. It was originally developed as an auxiliary scoring method, but is now used as a tie-breaking system. It was probably first used in the 1932 Bitterfeld tournament

The method is to give each player a raw score of one point for each win and a half point for each draw. When used as an alternate scoring system, each player’s Buchholz score is calculated by adding the raw scores of each of the opponents he played and multiplying this total by the player’s raw score. When used for tie-breaking among players with the same raw score, no multiplying is necessary and the sum of the raw scores of the opponents played is used to break ties.
