    We play basketball tournament. How can I reduce a player’s\team’s points in case of:
    – basketball game lost by forfeit;
    – to correct a mistake of the secretary of the tournament (need to change the result);
    – a decision on the protest on a game of a previous round (need to change the result).

      Use settings to add points. I don’t think you can remove points.

    Excellent site! Just a couple of questions:

    – Is there a reference to the difference between “Swiss Dutch FIDE” and “Swiss Dutch Ranked FIDE”? I think the ranked shows things like “1-2”, but I don’t know if there is more going on.
    – I see a player field for “Rating” but is that just for reference (no influence on pairing)?

    When setting the score to Arbitrary the system will not allow for draws. I am try to set it to 3 point for a win and 1 point for a draw. It will not allow the next round to generate with 1-1 score. TIA

    Great tool, thanks very much for building this.
    Would prefer if it can avoid putting multiple Byes to players before all the other players have had a Bye?

    This may be very silly, but I can’t figure out how to give a player a bye for the next round

      Go to Player. Click on Disabled BOX for a player that you wish to have bye before creating the next round.

    Hi Mato, love this tool. One question – if a player suddenly leaves in the middle of a tournament, how would I go about “nulling” them for the rest of the tournament? Ideally, I wouldn’t want players to match up with the absentee only to have to take a bye… let me know if there’s a way to solve this with your tool, thanks!

    Very nice website, easy to use. Is there a feature to generate next rounds with some results missing? Sometimes two players are unable to play say for example round 1, whereas the organizer would like start round 2?

      Mato Jelic Posted 22/04/2022 8:53 pm

      If two players are unable to play for example round 1 give them both 0 points and then you will be able to start next round. Then if they can play each other you can give a point to the winner in the setings.

    What is the difference between buct and buc1? How is that calculated between the 2? Thanks!

      I am not sure about the details bit if you win agonist a strong opponent then your point is worth more.

      It seems to me that BucT (second tie) is the sum of the raw scores of the opponents played. Buc 1 (first tie) is the same except that the worst score of the opponents is discarded.
