Match Format
Each match will consist of four players on your team facing off against four players on the opposing team. It will be an all-play-all format: Each player on your team will face each player on the other team.
The pairings go as follows: A1 = First board on team A, B3 = third board on team B etc. Team A will be the one that is listed first in the pairing table.
0:00 refers to the listed start time of your match. 0.40 means 40 minutes after the listed start time of your match, and so on.
Round 1 (0:00): A1-B1, A2-B2, B3-A3, B4-A4
Round 2 (0:40): B2-A1, B1-A2, A3-B4, A4-B3
Round 3 (1:20): A1-B3, A2-B4, B1-A3, B2-A4
Round 4 (2:00): B4-A1, B3-A2, A3-B2, A4-B1

Simon William (Ginger GM) expressed surprise that Australia and China didn't have teams. I note that groups are organised by time zones, so generating interest in the Phillipines and Indonesia might work in an Australian team's favour.
