Question
Can you provide us with a bridge rotation for 14 pairs playing three rounds in one day?   Our group plays for nine months.  To clarify:  we play only one day per month.

Answer
Hi,

The only thing I can do is to provide a rotation for 14 pairs, each pair playing every other pair once. The rotation lasts 13 rounds. You can use three of the rounds each month and then use the next three lines for the following month and so on. After completing the rotation you can start over again at the top.

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.
