Buzzer race

A buzzer race occurs when two or more players, usually but not necessarily on opposing teams, hit their buzzers at almost the exact same time. This generally occurs when a clue known to many players is read. Many games are won and lost on buzzer races irrespective of question quality, and thus buzzer races are not a hallmark of bad quizbowl; however, poorly written questions can exacerbate the frequency of these occurrences.
