Eight is Enough is a Swiss Teams format which evens the strength of the teams and gives everyone a fairer chance to win. This format has been very successful at clubs around the country.
Our own experience has been that '8 is enough' games are more competitive than regular swiss games.
In Eight is Enough each player is assigned a point value based on that player's total masterpoints. Each team consists of four players whose total point value does not exceed 8.
- Players with 0 - 499 masterpoints: value = 1
- Players with 500 - 1499 masterpoints: value = 2
- Players with 1500+ masterpoints: value = 3
These are subject to change as necessary to maintain competitive teams
There are no restrictions to partnership combinations among team members.
A team can have a value of less than 8.
