    So there are N players and they should be divided into two teams.

    The question is should each team have the same number of players? In that case there's a common and very simple distribution strategy. The two best players become captains for each one team and then they take turns to pick a player for their team until all players are chosen. It's understood that the best remaining player (the one with the highest skill-point) is always selected next.

    I don't know if this strategy is optimal but I do know it's considered fair by every kid above the age of seven or so.
