Question
I need a rotation for 9 pairs over 8 months.  I looked, but didn't see one in the answers available.  Thanks for the help!

Answer
Hi,

Below is a rotation for 9 pairs. The full rotation lasts 9 months but it is not necessary to use the whole thing. Since there is an odd number of pairs it is necessary for one pair each month to sit out.

Month        Pair Matchups

 1        9-2  8-3  7-4  6-5  Pair 1 sits out
 2        1-3  9-4  8-5  7-6  Sit out = 2
 3        2-4  1-5  9-6  8-7  Sit out = 3
 4        3-5  2-6  1-7  9-8  Sit out = 4
 5        4-6  3-7  2-8  1-9  Sit out = 5
 6        5-7  4-8  3-9  2-1  Sit out = 6
 7        6-8  5-9  4-1  3-2  Sit out = 7
 8        7-9  6-1  5-2  4-3  Sit out = 8
 9        8-1  7-2  6-3  5-4  Sit out = 9

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.
