If at the completion of the third end of a tie-breaker the scores are equal, a fourth tie-breaker end will be played. In both section play and knockout play there should be no further play in the tie-breaker if, at any point, it becomes impossible for one player to draw or win the tie-breaker given the number of ends left.
