In most scenario's...say a Swiss..the lowest rated losing person
usually gets the bye...but this is a KO and is a little different.
So to stick with the original set of rules that we set this up on..whoever
wins in the top games of the division gets the bye in the second
round...i.e. Pawnking vs maggoteer...whoever wins in that gets the
Just to clarify, incase I am being thick. there will be 9 of us left after
the first round in the 1300 division, one takes a bye, so after the 2nd
round there will be 5 of us. If the highest ranked player in the division
takes a bye each round does this not mean that they will have a bye
till the divisional final?
No..the winner in the highest bracket game will get the bye in the next
round..then he will play the winner of the highest bracket game from
the seconround and the bye would actually drop to the winner of the
second highest bracket game...I know...somewhat confusing but it will
all make sense soon.
