Re: What is a Swiss Format DMDesiderata     12/24/2010 14:10

Example of an SW Tournament

This is a simplified explanation of how SW Swiss System pairings are made. The detailed rules of how to do the pairing are usually quite complicated.

Players in the tournament listed in order of highest Seed to lowest. Seed will be determined either by Rating or Random based on the tournament rules.

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

First Round - Pairings:

Players are split in 2 sub-groups so the top half players are playing the bottom half players in order:
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)

Players Standings will be as follows:

Player #1 1 - 0
Player #2 0 - 1
Player #3 1 - 0
Player #4 0 - 1
Player #5 1 - 0
Player #6 0 - 1

Second Round - Pairings

Based on the results of Round 1, Players with 1 point will be listed, in order of Seed, in List 1:
Player #1
Player #3
Player #5

Players with 0 points will be listed, in order of Seed, in List 2:

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

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

Players Standings will be as follows:

Player #1 2 - 0
Player #2 1 - 1
Player #3 1 - 1
Player #4 1 - 1
Player #5 1 - 1
Player #6 0 - 2

The Tourney is over and Player #1 is declared the winner.
