Does the software rank the players and then have 1 play 2, 3 play 4, etc or does it just randomly assign players to each other who have the same number of pts?
Greetings Urbanjedi!

When using swiss pairing WER will pair players with similar points randomly. So if you have 3 players with 6 points those players will be reandomly paired. One of the three will be "paired down" against the group with 3 match points.
