Re: Chess.com Isle Of Man Tournament 23 Sep to 1 Oct 2017

More seriously, is this a pairing method accepted by FIDE? Can any FIDE-rated Swiss tournament come up with any method they like to do. first round pairings? If you want to do something unusual like this, It is advisable to obtain clearance from the FIDE Qualification Commission before you announce...
