Running a Swiss teams' event

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

A Swiss teams event is one where the results of the previous rounds are used to determine the opponents the teams play on the next round. In the ASE Scorer Version 9 the main conceptual difference between a Swiss teams event and a multi-session event is that the term "round" is used instead of "session". The terms "round" and "session" are used interchangeably in Swiss events.


The big difference from other teams' events is the draw. Each tam has only one opponent on each round. A "draw" of opponents is published before each round.


From the main menu select the [New] event option [Ctrl-n]. The event wizard screen is shown.


Choose "Swiss teams" as the event type. Fill in the other options as you need, but the default values already showing are typically adequate. The title should conform to your club standards. All values in the other options may be changed later if you need using the [Event properties].


Click [Next].

The session wizard is now showing. Change the values as you need, but the default values already showing are typically adequate. All values may be changed later using the [Session properties]


Click [Next].

The Swiss teams session details screen is now showing. The number of tables in the session is the most important item. The maximum number of tables allowed with this version of the ASE Scorer Version 9 is 500. The number of boards per match is used for VP scales and masterpoint rules.


Click [Teams draw] to change the table numbers and the team numbers from the default values.


Click [Done].

The [Save As] dialogue is shown. Normally you would enter the file name of the event at this time. The event will be saved in the file specified, and each time you [Save] the event it will be placed in this file.


Click [Save].

The second session is produced by selecting [Session]/[New]. You will be asked if you want an automatic Swiss draw produced. Normally the answer is [Yes]. Where you wish to enter your own draw for the round click [No].


Conduct the second and any subsequent rounds in the same way as the first. The outright results report will chow the accumulation of the teams' results over all rounds.
