I notice that Swiss Teams has been added to the Web version of BBO. This is most welcome. Is there a page of instructions available covering running a Swiss Teams event in a Virtual Club on BBO. Failing that, can anyone advise as to how to set total boards and boards per round with respect to the number of teams expected in a tournament. How does the BBO Swiss Teams movement work?

Does anyone know what movements are used?

For example, are rematches possible?

And, if you run a Swiss Teams with ten teams and nine rounds, will you get a round-robin movement?

I have been told that Round Robin does not work.

We did not see rematches so far but did not play more rounds than
1/2 number of teams+1

I don't know about the html version, but I tried a 5x5 board movement with 6 teams in the Flash Version, hoping for an all-play-all event, but there were re-matches in rounds 4 and 5 (2 teams played all the other teams, but the other 4 had re-matches). If the html version is based on the same movement, then I imagine you would get re-matches in a 10-team 9-round movement.
