Swiss System Tournaments

In a Swiss Tournament, every player plays in every round regardless of their match results. (A player may withdraw from the tournament after any round if they no longer wish to compete). Each win counts as one (1) point, and each loss counts as zero (0) points.

Regular Swiss System

In Swiss System format, the tournament is completed when there is only one player remaining who is undefeated. The number of rounds is set before the tournament in order to specify a maximum number of players. If the tournament is set for six rounds, this does not guarantee there will be six rounds of play because players withdrawing from the tournament may shorten the rounds required to reach a single undefeated player. If for some reason after the given number of rounds has been played and there is still more than one undefeated player the tournament will be extended in order to determine a winner.

True Swiss System

In True Swiss System format, the number of rounds is preset by the TD before the tournament starts and regardless of the number of participants, the number of rounds does not change once the tournament begins. After all the rounds are complete the player with the most points wins. If there is no conclusive point leader there is no winner of the tournament.

To determine the pairings, the following method is used.

·         Players are put into a list from top to bottom in order of skill rating. (All players on a list have the same number of points. For the first round, since all players have 0 points, there is only one list.)

·         The list is divided into two groups, the top half and the bottom half. (Obviously all lists must have an even number of players in them. If they don't, players are moved to another list in order to make all lists even.)

·         The first player in the top half is paired against the first player in the bottom half, second player from top half against second player in bottom half, and so on.

Example of a Tournament:

Players in the tournament listed in order of highest rating to lowest:

Player #1
Player #2
Player #3
Player #4
Player #5
Player #6

First Round Pairings:

Player #1 vs Player #4 (assume player #1 wins)
Player #2 vs Player #5 (assume player #5 wins)
Player #3 vs Player #6 (assume player #3 wins)

List 1 (All players with 1 point, in order of rating)

Player #1
Player #3
Player #5

List 2 (All players with 0 points, in order of rating)

Player #2
Player #4
Player #6

Player #5 would be moved down to the top of List 2 so that both lists have even number of players

Second Round Pairings

Player #1 vs Player #3
Player #5 vs Player #4
Player #2 vs Player #6

This is a general explanation of how swiss system pairings are made.

These are the rules you must follow to manually change the Blue pairings

READ CAREFULLY!!!!

 

 

General Swiss System Pairing Rules

The rules should be followed from top to bottom in order of importance.

- Undefeated players should play other undefeated players so that the tournament eventually comes to an end.
- Players should NEVER play the same person twice.
- Players play other players with the same number of points.
- Players should only receive one more bye than any other person in the tournament at any given time. Therefore, if a player is about to receive his/her second bye before another player has yet to receive any byes, these players should be swapped. The next player in line to receive the bye should be the player with the lowest number of points and the lowest rating (in that order.)

The above rules should be adhered to very strongly, whereas the next rule is slightly more optional.

- Whenever a player is forced to play another person who has a different number of points than them, that player is said to have been "floated." For example, assume player A has 1 point, and player B has 0 points. If they play each other, then it is said that player A was floated downward and player B was floated upwards. This should be taken into consideration whenever possible. A player floating upwards has had more difficult pairings, and therefore should not be floated upwards again if at all possible, and the player being floated downwards is considered to have had an easier pairing, and should not be floated downward again if at all possible.
