The number of places was set to 2.
Since I wrote this thread, I discovered that I had TWO ties, one for first place ind series handicap, and the second tie for second place for ind scratch game. In both cases, I had setup for prizes to two places, and different prize money for first/second. The software did not notify me about either tie. For the first place tie, it simply assign the two bowlers to first and second place, but did not adjust the prize money. For the second place tie, it only assign the first bowler with the tie to second place. In this case, I had to add a third place (and I'm pretty sure I had to assign the bowler). In both cases, I had to go into the detail tab and change the money amounts. I don't have a problem going in and changing the money awarded, but the system didn't even notify me that there was a tie and that I needed to make some manual changes. I got lucky and noticed the ties, otherwise I wouldn't had any idea that there was a problem.
