I refer to https://handbook.fide.com/chapter/B01DirectTitles2017 for the following question:
Direct titles are awarded based on your performance in certain tournaments.
A gold finish is being 1st after tiebreaks with any other players in your point group. 1st equal means the best 3 players who are tied for highest points, ranked after tiebreaks.
That much is clear, however the definition for Silver and Bronze performances are not written.
Long ago I found information online describing how Silver and Bronze are awarded, and I recall in some scenarios Silver was not awarded at all, maybe if there are two Gold winners for example, or perhaps two people tied for first, then the 3rd place would get a Bronze instead. I also remember it being possible to have multiple Silver and Bronze winners.
I did some search but could not find anything about them now. Could someone in the know shed some light on the exact definition and criteria for obtaining the Silver and Bronze positions?
