Question
Can someone provide a rotation for 14 and 16 couples for a bridge marathon to be played over a six month period in individual homes?  Thank you.

Answer
Hi,

I can give you a rotation where each pair plays six different pairs and does not meet the same pair twice. Give each pair a number.

Month        Pair match ups 14 pairs

 1       14-1  13-2  12-3  11-4  10-5  9-6  8-7
 2       14-2  1-3   13-4  12-5  11-6  10-7 9-8
 3       14-3  2-4   1-5   13-6  12-7  11-8 10-9
 4       14-4  3-5   2-6   1-7   13-8  12-9 11-10
 5       14-5  4-6   3-7   2-8   1-9  13-10 12-11
 6       14-6  5-7   4-8   3-9   2-10  1-11 13-12

Month        Pair match ups 16 pairs

 1      16-1  15-2  14-3  13-4  12-5  11-6  10-7  9-8
 2      16-2  1-3   15-4  14-5  13-6  12-7  11-8  10-9
 3      16-3  2-4   1-5   15-6  14-7  13-8  12-9  11-10
 4      16-4  3-5   2-6   1-7   15-8  14-9  13-10 12-11
 5      16-5  4-6   3-7   2-8   1-9   15-10 14-11 13-12
 6      16-6  5-7   4-8   3-9   2-10  1-11  15-12 14-13

I can answer questions on bidding and on cardplay with the caveat that the former may necessarily involve some subjectivity. I have been playing tournament bridge for over 20 years and I have won several regional tournaments.
