[EM] simple question (I think)

Hi, I haven't been around for a good while but some of you may remember me.

I have recently been playing around with some stuff for scoring condorcet
elections, and ran into a question that seemed obvious but maybe not:

Is it possible, in any of the Condorcet election methods (beatpath, ranked
pairs, etc), for someone who has fewer pairwise wins than another candidate,
to win the election regardless?

For instance, say there is no Condorcet winner. Candidates A, B and C all
have 8 pairwise wins. D has 7. Could D still be chosen as the winner by any
"reasonable" method?
