Surprised nobody seems to have picked up on this, but the problem with "random" (non-deterministic) pairings is that whoever is responsible can just run the algorithm over and over until it spits out pairings he/she wants, then claim it is simply the result of the algorithm, which it is but....

I imagine this is what happened to Hou.

Tournament pairing needs to be deterministic with reproducible results in order to prevent abuse. Sad we live in a world where this is necessary, but it clearly is.
