    Scheveningen Pairing System

    Does anyone have the format for pairing players in this way? I do not seem to be able to find it on the net.

    What sort of event are you planning that would require the need for the Scheveningen pairing system.

    It is not so much need, as possibly want.

    We might only have two teams in one of our interclub divisions, so thought I would ask for the pairing format so the teams can be offered something other than just the standard board one v board one, play each other six times type format.

    The main usage of the format is where team A plays team B and all the members of team A play all the members of team B. Naturally the members of the respective teams do not play each other.

    When used as a FIDE rating tournament to generate ratings for non FIDE rated players, half the field have FIDE ratings and half the field dont. All the people with FIDE ratings play all those without FIDE ratings but none of the FIDE rated players play each other and none of the none FIDE rated players play each other.

    Am aware of this I was just after the formal pairing format.

    Curiously, the FIDE site refers to it in several places, but does not define it.
    Also, for round robin tournaments, there are several references to the Berger tables, but they can not be found within the FIDE pages.
    My guess is that both (and probably several other technical details) were formally defined in some FIDE congresses a long time ago (pre-WWW days), that they are kept in writing, but that until now FIDE has not put them online.
