I was looking forward to an exciting 4 man team season for my Former NYC Chess Club and Friends team. Then I discovered that only 1 other team is in my division and we have 2 games each.
I suggest that if the last division has 3 teams or less, add them to the next-to-last division. Players in the last division would then have a maximum of 16 games maximum instead of 10 games.
I noticed that.
It's very difficult when the number of teams entered is not divisible by six.
What's going to happen at the end of the season?
Do you both go up?
I think there needs to be some sort of "bye" system if the arithmetic doesn't fit
something like , in this case, 8 teams in four divisions with an equal number of byes for each team so the game load stays the same
Over to the statisticians!!
