PairFX is a chess pairing program for youth tournaments in schools and chess clubs . It supports the organization of a so-called 'run through' tournament.
You can add and remove players on the fly and adjust the pairings if you wish. Its not round based but game based, so those who can play faster will be playing more games than those who play slower. That's not bad.
The pairing algorithm sorts the players according to percentage and points, and then tries from the bottom to the top to make pairings.
The important thing is that the players play as much as possible. Where round based pairing programs come in handy when organizing club competitions and adults tournaments, PairFX proves to be better for youth tournaments. Ideal to run tournaments at school. Are you a chess teacher at school, or organize a separate tournament at the club? Try PairFx.
