Pairings will be Glasscoe Pairings. Pairing Rules
1) no player can play the same player twice
2) Tournament Director will try to pair those within the same score group whenever possible.
3) No player can have 3 blacks in a row.
4)Players will be paired as CLOSE to their rating as possible.. so you will always play other players within your score group that are right next to you on the standings and close to your rating.
5)Weikel odd man pairings will be used whenever players are floated up (they will be floated up to the next score group then paired with Glasscoe Pairings within that score group)
6) Play up fee will be reduced by 50% (since playing up is not as worthwhile as normal)
7)Pairings are unfair to those who are the highest rated in their group as they are guaranteed to have the toughest schedule of any player (but that is just how Glasscoe pairings work)
