Question
I coordinate a bridge group.  We now have 8 couples, play 8 times a year, play at 2 houses...2 tables per house.
I have done this for years with 12 couples but for some reason I am having difficulty this year with only 8 couples finding some couples play others 5 times or not at all.  I hope you can help.

Answer
Hi,

Below is a movement for 8 pairs at two houses (four tables). Pairs are numbered 1-8. The chart contains the pairing for each of the 4 tables for each month.


Month     Table 1    Table 2    Table 3    Table 4

1         8-1        6-3        7-2        4-5
2         8-2        7-4        1-3        5-6
3         8-3        1-5        2-4        6-7
4         8-4        2-6        3-5        7-1
5         8-5        3-7        4-6        1-2

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.
