Question
We have 8 pairs for rubber bridge. We play at 2 homes(4 Pairs)
8 times in the year. We'd like a rotation in which everyone plays all pairs 2X each if possible and not 6X ever. thank you,

Answer
Hi,

Here is a possible rotation.

Month          Pairs
        Home 1    Home 2

 1     8,1,6,2   5,7,3,4
 2     8,2,7,3   6,1,4,5
 3     8,3,1,4   7,2,5,6
 4     8,4,2,5   1,3,6,7
 5     8,5,3,6   2,4,7,1
 6     8,6,4,7   3,5,1,2
 7     8,7,5,1   4,6,2,3
 9     8,1,6,2   5,7,3,4

Since the complete rotation spans seven months, Month 8 is just a repeat of Month 1.

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.
