Swiss Pairs 20th May 2024

We will be holding a Swiss Pairs competition instead of the usual Pairs on Monday 20th May 2024. We will play 5 x 5 board matches.

In a Swiss Pairs tournament, your opponents for the second and all subsequent matches are determined by how well you are doing overall at the end of each match. The system will find you a pair to play against with a similar or identical rolling score. Thus, as the tournament progresses the players doing well only play against other players that are doing well and similarly for those doing less well. This also means that sometimes you will sit NS and at others EW and this produces an overall winner rather than winners in each direction. The number of boards per match will be of 5 boards duration. Match scores are converted to Victory Points (VPs) on a scale of 0 – 20. It is the rolling total VP score that is used to ‘match up’ opponents from round two onwards. Swiss Pairs are controlled and scored using a program that prevents pairs from playing each other twice.
