For this tournament, the system to pair teams for a given round is called Adjacent Pairing. Teams are first ranked based on their number of swiss points and then adjacent teams are matched up. If there are 8 teams ranked 1 through 8, 1 would play 2, 3 would play 4, 5 would play 6, and 7 would play 8.
If any byes are given out, the lowest ranked team will have the bye and will be awarded a certain number of points for that round, determined by the tournament director.
The schedule is adjusted so that no two teams play each other more than once and no team will have more than one bye.
