Fall Swiss Round 3 10/24/07 7 PM
We are using a McMahon pairing system in both sections where Masters and Experts start with 3 bye points, Class A players start with 2, Class B with 1 and Class C and below with 0. This way you will mostly be playing with players close to your own rating, but as with any Swiss system, when you win, you get tougher pairings in the next round, and when you lose, you get easier pairings (in most cases).
63 players total in this event, including the 2 match players.
