Round Robin Group Formations
1. No table will have more than 7 players and no table will have less than 6 players. 2. Table # 1 will have 7 players if total #players >= 13. 3. Table #2 will have 7 players if total #players >=20. 4. If the number of players in the lowest table is less than 6 then the bottom 2 tables will have double round-robin format as follows:
a.) Players from the bottom 2 tables will be divided into 2 groups (group A and group B) b.) Group A and Group B players will be mixed up in tournament format (e.g: Players seeded 1,4,5,8 in one group and players seeded 2,3,6 and 7 will be in the other group) c.) At the end of the first round-robin, players will be re-arranged again into two groups Group A(winner group ) and B (loser group ) for 2nd round-robin play. d.) Players who played each other in the first round-robin will not face each other again.
If the total number of players=22, then table 1=7 players (single round-robin), table 2=7 players (single round robin). Table 3 now has 8 players. So, they play double round-robin. They will be divided into 2 groups, group 3A and group 3B as follows:
First Round Robin:
Group 3A Group 3B
#1(seed #1) #2 (seed #2)
Round Robin 2:
