What is Bye? Explain the procedure and formula for giving Bye?

Bye is an advantage given to a team which is decided generally by seeding or by drawing of lots. Byes can be applied equally to “single person competitions” and “team sports” as well as to “single game eliminations” and best of “series eliminations”. If the no of competitors or competing teams are not a multiple of 2 then some teams may get ‘Bye’.

Formula for giving ‘Bye’ is,

. Next higher power of 2 – No. of teams

. Upper half = (Nb – 1)÷2

. Lower half = (Nb + 1)÷2

* Nb means total no. of teams.
