And still do a round robin? That would be too many games.

I've done large groups before, such as in LVI I had an 8 player group but each player played only 5 others in the group. Back in XLIX I had a 3 player double round robin in the bottom group.

So, I've done it both ways. What is the general preference?

We don't have to do a round robbin. But I rather play new folks. D is too small.

No dog in the race since I'm busy getting slaughtered in group A, but I agree with the sentiment that a larger variety of opponents > double round robin with the same opponents.

Another option is to make every bracket have one more player. So everyone plays six games instead of five.
