The first row indicates the color and number of the player you played. In round 5, Benjamin Suite (#1) played white against Richard Benson (#3). The second row shows player information (rating and USCF number) and shows your cumulative score by round.

Players are usually listed in the order of their pairing numbers, which are based on their pre-tournament ratings. The pairing number is the number preceding the players name. It is possible for pairing numbers to change if new players enter the tournament, and if they have a higher per-tournament rating than yours. Don’t worry – the computer will adjust all data to keep the information accurate.

Byes that you have requested in advance will be listed on the cross table. If you asked for any byes, please check to make sure they are listed in the correct rounds on the cross table.

Players, parents and coaches should check all the data on the cross tables after each round and report any problems immediately to Tournament Headquarters.
