What's the best (balanced / fairest) movement for 7.5 tables playing more than 24 boards and less that 30 boards? We don't like the Mitchell shared relay because the sit out pairs play only 21 boards. We don't like the skip Mitchell because it's unbalanced.
We use ScoreBridge and I've been looking at their options and they recommend an 8 table 9 round Hesitation Mitchell. They recommend that with this movement the sit out pair is Pair 1(N/S). We like to alternate the sit outs between N/S and E/W - what problems arise by having any other pair number sit out? I've run a couple of fictitious rounds through ScoreBridge with a Pair 1 sit out and a Pair 9 sit out and I note that on both occasions 9 pairs (i.e. not 8) play only 24 boards and on both occasions pairs 8 and 10 only play 24 boards.
Any suggestions / observations?
