PS - Player Select
When this option is used, a player (The Team Captain) creates a team and another player joins by using the correct password.
SS - System Select
Is the default option. When this option is used, players sign up as individuals, and when the tourney is closed the system will assign teams according to the following criteria:
- Players are split into two equal groupings, the "A" and the "B", by ratings. If 16 players are entered, the top 8 ratings would be group A, the bottom 8 would be group B. Teams would be assigned as follows: the top rating in A (#1) would be paired with the top rating in B (#9), #2 with #10, and so forth, with #8 teamed with #16.
- If an odd number of players are entered, the system will drop the last one to register.
- Assigned teams remain as partners for the duration of the tournament.
