My record is 149-100-15 and the 2nd place guy is 149-106-9. I'm 3 games up on him it says but we both have the same number of wins, 149. Unless you mean something else by total wins?

I'm sorry, I just don't follow numbers very well

Figuring out games back in H2H with ties is easier than at first appears.

Just remember that ties count as half a win.

So take your total number of wins (149 for you, 149 for 2nd place) and add 1/2 your number of ties (7.5 for you, 4.5 for 2nd place).

You = 156.5 wins
2nd = 153.5 wins.

Thus, you are 3 games up on him.

Hope that helps!
