Great stuff, this looks like its shaping up to be a good tournament with a new breed of juniors who will be after some scalps :D

Can I just ask what prompted it to be an 8-rounder instead of the more customary 9-rounder?

Our autumn cup has generally been 7 rounds. A format preferred by the club captain. [he has a short attention span] Our calendar guru has a tendency to allow the length of the tournament to expand to the time available. An even number of rounds creates some difficulties with colour allocations but in larger tournaments SP has coped with this pretty well in the past

Nice one, the more chess the better. Looks like it will be a good event, and I hope it all works out with the pairings :)

Neither old nor doddery! I was just inspired by the resolute tone of your speech about pairings on Friday night.
Then your inimitable "The draw is a living thing" came to my mind so I said to myself "Wait a minute here, I better remind him just in case"!
For the non initiated, the BHCC Captain started his address to the participants before Round 2 of the Club's Autumn last Friday by saying...
"It's always good to check the draw on the website to see who is your opponent, but don't forget that what's pubished is always preliminary..
"I 've been directing tournaments for years and years (when he says that you better pay attention) and let me tell you I have seen pairings changed just before the round started and I have seen pairings changed after the round has started..."
See what I mean?

Elliott you left out the best part of the story. It happened in an Australian championship and the arbiter whose name I have forgotten was an international arbiter from Queensland. He stuffed up the pairings[hand paired at the time] and had to redraw. The games at that stage were well on the way but everyone took it quite well and restarted with different opponents.

LOL I never knew that... Seems like I have to shortlist the Queenslander IAs till I get to the right one.:lol:
BTW let me add than in the years that I have played under your direction / arbitering, I am yet to see one, and I mean a single one situation where the tournament wasn't run smoothly and without the slightest problem. :clap:
Peter Tsai, seems to follow in the steps of the great BHCC tradition of successful tournament direction / arbitering! :clap:

Anyone who even might try this caper needs to bear in mind that under current FIDE pairing rules a draw made public as a final draw can only be re-paired in extreme circumstances. To get around this organisers can announce in advance that all draws are provisional, but even so I think unpairing a round in progress is generally not a good look.

I found myself in a similar situation about 10 years ago (computer supplied apparently incorrect pairings but I was not awake to the problem and posted them) and in that situation I didn't change the draw. As a result of that we have a TCA ruling that the draw in all our weekenders is provisional until 5 minutes before the round starts.

A player had to withdraw from round 7 after the pairings were done. This problem was elegantly overcome by Gerrit who left almost all pairings unchanged but found me a new opponent.
