Then for the best player, your toughest games would likely be at the beginning of the tournament and get progressively easier, while the players with lower rankings would face progressively harder games. Again, this is assuming that rating is an adequate barometer of skill, which may or may not be the case (sorry about that, Dave.)

    No reason to be sorry...as all know I will play whoever...and will enjoy the game win or lose.

    I just know that if the pairings go y rating then it is not really fair since you all know I should be 600 points more than what I currently am.

    I don't want anyone mad at me due to my abscence and losing so many games on TO....in no way shape or form have I tried to manipulate the system...I think most know my life went to hell in a hand basket and I had to take care of alot before I really came back...but there are still a few people out there that don't know and I would hate for someone to get pissed and say they didn't think it was fair playing me since my rating does not represent my strength.

    Well, as the highest ranking player in this tournment, probably not for long πŸ˜›, I can only say: I vote for the biggest fun, which is random.
    Otherwise the classic approach is to split the table into 2 halves and then 1. from the higher plays 1. from the lower half etc etc.
    But that gives strong players too big advantage. Random selection promises a good change for all players to progress very far bearing in mind that strong players can eliminate themselves among each other ..

    other ..
    another possibilitiy is to split the set into quartiles instead of halves. so in a 100-person set, 1 plays 26 and 51 plays 76, etc. or maybe into deciles ?!

    What about if both players wins one game, do they play a third game or does both go to the next round. If they are playing a third game, then all the group winners who have a tie in the tournament 100-1 should also play again.

    What about if I resign after I had won my games in round two, who is going to the next round, would I go despite I have resigned or the loosing player or nobody!!!

    If the number of your current games is greater than your limit on accepting new challenges will you still be able to get into the tourney? I just thought of that as I have 30+ games and have my prefs set to not accept challenges until my games drop below 10. πŸ˜•

    I'm signed up and excited to play! Good luck everyone!!!πŸ˜€

    I have an idea! 😲

    If they don't want to do random pairings then they can put our names in a hat and draw them out for the pairings! πŸ˜€
