    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    With 128 entries will seven rounds define a true winner? Or not that important.

    All the stuff about given numbers of rounds determining or not determining a winner is nonsense because of draws. You can have a 6-round Swiss with hundreds of players and get a unique winner, you can have an 11-round Swiss with 30 players and get a five-way tie for first. There's nothing wrong with having joint winners in a Swiss if two players perform equally well. However, with 128 players, seven rounds is enough to be certain you won't get two winners with perfect scores. With any more than that, it isn't, unless acceleration is used. Any further discussion of this point will be moved.
