    This has probably been asked before, but I can't find the information I'm looking for in the FAQ, Tournament Forum, or Help Forum.

    What determines the pairings in a split tournament? I understand that thepairings are designed to ensure that the top players won't encounter each other too early in the tourney. That makes sense. But I was wondering if there was some sort of seeding formula used to determine the pairings. Thanks in advance.

    I originally thought that, as well. But at least for the first two split tourneys I've entered that hasn't been the case.
