teams. The organizers should find out the really
strong teams from the previous tournaments or
old records figure starting a new tournament.
The advantage given to a team usually by drawing a
lot, and exempting it from playing a match in the first
round is known as Bye. These are given to a specific
number of teams in the first round.
The number of byes is decided by subtracting the
number of teams from the next higher number
which is in the power of two’s.
Bye = Next Higher No-no of Team [2n-no of teams]
The procedure of giving byes is as follows:
The first bye is given to the last team of the lower half.
The second bye is given to the first team of the upper
The third bye is given to the first team of the lower half
The fourth bye is given to the last team of the upper

number of teams of power of two’s

where n is the total number of teams.

number, the team number 1 is fixed on the top of left
hand side and then other team numbers in ascending

rotate in a clockwise direction. If the number of teams is
odd then the bye is fixed on the top of the right hand
side and rest of the procedure will remain the same. If the
