10.2

If the numeric sums of placements are equal, the next lower place or places, for only the couples concerned, must be included until a majority is reached.

Note the use of Rule 7.1 where both couples 2 and 3 reached a majority position at the 1-2 level. Both couples have an equal majority and an equal sum of placements. Rule 10.2 states that the next lower position column for only the couples involved will be considered. If, by mistake, all were included in the next evaluation, couple 4 would have received second place in error.

Rule 11.0 - No Couple Receives a Majority for the Positions Under Review

If no couple receives a majority of "firsts", then the winner is the couple that is placed "second or higher" by a majority of the judges. If no couple receives a majority of "second or higher" placings, then the "third and higher" and, if necessary, subsequently lower place columns must be included, subject to Rules 9.0, 10.1, and 10.2.
